Start up Renaissance past 5 bolts, bring cams .5 to 2" for the next 25 feet. After the crux of "Rosie" lean right and clip the bolt step right 15 feet and finish on pocket full of posies.

Sounds like this is the same route as "Whole Lot of Rosie"?? I guess this is probably the correct name since Mike Tupper added it. May 15, 2014

Here's my take on the routes/extensions that begin with the left bolted crack start, Renaissance/ Lower Rosie (5.10-, 6 bolts):

After reaching the anchor at 40', there are 4 extensions (from L->R)
-The Mortal Kombat extension heads up and left to an independent anchor.
-Whole Lotta Rosie (5.11+): follows the left crack all the way up to a high anchor(bring gear for this, plus the 6 lower bolts).
-Renaissance Man (5.12-): follows the left crack a ways (bring gear for this), then cuts right across the slab (passing 1 bolt) to join the top of the right extension (thus bypassing its 5.13 crux), ultimately going to the same high anchor as Whole Lotta Rosie. 15 bolts total + gear. You can see the link-up bolt about a body-length above the climber
-Ring Around The Rosie (5.13): the steep all-bolted arete that is a bit to the right of the Lower Rosie anchor, 17 bolts. (The description posted above is calling this "Pocket Full of Posies".) May 15, 2014

Thanks for the input guys. For the time being, I've sorted Renaissance Man as George suggested (right of "Whole Lotta Rosie", left of "Ring Around the Rosie"). If any of the Standby Shack regulars have a correction, please comment. May 16, 2014
