There is a route that seems to be between Fiona's Route and Heads or Tails? and doesn't match a description submitted to date.

There are 2 starts to this. The right start is probably the wiser one to do. Clamber aboard the rock to the right of a right-facing dihedral with 2 obvious pins. The left start involves a double sidepull move, a right foot cam, and a left foot on a slanting groove. Watch the abductor move or you may scrape up your left shin. Move left into the dihedral. This will be tougher for the very short. Go upwards and join one of the other crowded lines above on the slab.

There is a bolt next to a #2 Camalot crack for an anchor.


This is left of the obvious, shallow crack for Fiona's Route by perhaps 10 feet.


2 pins, a bolt, a few small cams, and an anchor bolt & #2 Camalot for the anchor.
