At the left end of this sector is a bit 20-foot-high rock with a 5-foot-wide platform below its right side.
Many people start by scrambling to the top of the big rock, where there is two-bolt anchor. Belaying from there reduces rope drag and makes communication much easier.
Then up the cool face past 7 bolts to anchor, and lower-off to platform below right from big rock.
Variation 1: The start in the print guidebook is to go up the awkward dihedral on right side of the big rock to reach the anchor on top - (5.8, 1 bolt).
Variation 2: Start instead far below the left side of the big rock, in a steep gully at the right end of the Left Side sector, next to the route "I Am". Up the gully at first steep (5.7, 1 bolt), then gentle to reach the anchor on top of big rock.
. . (Not sure how well-protected this is -- could also be done on top-rope).
