This link up of Tears of Gold and Gold Connection will give you two mediocre pitches followed by two super great pitches at a more modest grade of 5.12. You could likely swing over and get a top rope on the classic tufa pitch of Gold Connection for extra credit.

Pitch 2
Climb out right up dihedral as for Gold Connection. 5.10
