Back in the late 70's, the left route was commonly referred to as the "tennis shoe problem" There is a V3-ish problem just to the right which goes up to a prominent quartz crystal pocket just over the lip on some very thin edging. I recall another problem just to the just to the right of the crystal problem but before you come to the crack (shown V2 in the photo).

I've always heard it called not only the "tennis shoe problem" but the rock referred to as "tennis shoe boulder"

I also recall 3 or maybe even 5 different problems between the V2-V3 problems. Some of the problems were just eleminate contrivances or starting left instead of right hand, etc...

Edit: Sorry, I meant between the V2s. At least two independent lines and pbbly a 3rd before you start adding variants. There's the high dish stuff and then a thing left and right of the dish.

There is at least one more independent line between the 2 V2's listed that starts from high holds.
