There's also a bolted route on the face to the right of Steam Rock Fever. It's 4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (no chains). Felt 5.8-5.9. Mountain Project doesn't list this route, and I don't have any further info on this area.

Erin O'Brien - just did the same one you are talking about, today. To the right of Steam Rock Fever. Similar Feelings, 5.8ish. It would be nice to have more info if anyone has a guidebook or feels the need to label it on MP for a tick. Thanks
