Since you're up there anyway...
There's a pretty cool route that follows the arete on the right side corner of the F&B slab. It starts with tricky face climbing proteced with a bolt and then goes into easy and good finger/hand cracks. Then just layback the easy arete to the F&B anchor. Very easy on the arete but with fun movement and great position. And a good TR if you make sure to place some directionals on top.

Climbing in the Flake n' Bake area can be extended both below and above to make a 3 or 4 pitch climb.
Below pitch 1 of the route Flake n' Bake is a run-out lead that starts on a shallow angled slab and initially follows an intermittent crack trending to climber's left and then up and back right (Slab Happy, 5.3). Paralleling that is a straight-up top-rope var (The Slab, 5.7). Both end at the ample ledge with bolted anchor ("Lunch Ledge") at the base of Flake and Bake route.
Above, or rather, splitting off pitch 2 of the route Flake n' Bake are a couple short routes: either finish up a steeper, obvious, slightly right-trending, hand-crack (In A Jam, 5.7); or face climb (top rope, 5.8) just to the left of and paralleling In A Jam.
These additional route names and ratings come from Barry and Rita Loucks' guide. They may warrant separate route pages instead of this comment - feel free if inclined.
