The right side of the Black Wall at Sespe gets the most traffic. When you get to the wall, climb Tree Root (5.5) then Ending Crack (5.6/5.7). Both have good protection on solid rock. One of my favorites is Pipe Cleaner (5.6). It's a shorter pitch but offers larger fist/hand jams and even a few knee jams (dare we say "off-width"?) on clean rock. With 2 ropes you can top rope most of (not so clean) White Spider (5.7) and a good chunk of nearby real estate. Pine to Pine (5.6R) on the right side offers a less clean alternative if Tree Root and Ending Crack are taken.
