We used the bolt anchors for Unknown 4 to set up a Top-Rope on this route (or what we took it to be).

We started our climbing well to the right of those anchors (near what felt like the right edge of the main "wall" for the left side (left of the central gully) of the Horseshoe Slabs Right sector. So if one of us fell (which happened) they would swing a ways to the left. (but starting more to the left closer under the Unknown 4 anchor seemed harder than 5.8).

First we climbed straight up about 10 feet, then diagonal up left along an obvious dike, then roughly straight up to the Unknown 4 top anchor. Seemed around 5.7 with lots of fun moves.

Location: This route is in the left half (left side of the central gully) of the Horseshoe Slabs Right side. Aug 8, 2015

We had a toprope set up on Unknown 6. I went to the top of that and then led up to the anchors for Unknown 5 to establish another toprope. Was faster than cleaning/rapping off 6 and scrambling up to the top again for 5. Aug 21, 2013
