While climbing at French Gulch Slab my friends and I scrambled up the scree slope climber's left around to the back side and discovered four additional sport routes with shiny new 10mm stainless bolts and anchors. Since we couldn't find any beta on them I thought I'd post them here and give them honorary names until the FA-er chooses to claim them.

Getting There 

From Baker City:
--Take I-84 East 20 miles to Exit 327 at Durkee.
--Turn right onto Durkee Rd. after exiting I-84.
--Turn right on Old US 30 W. after crossing the railroad tracks in downtown Durkee.
--After about 1.5 miles, turn left onto Burnt River Canyon Rd.
--French Gulch Slab is 12.5 miles (mostly gravel) down the road on the right.
--There's a short spur road driveway to the base of the crag.

This route climbs a dihedral with a left-facing crack. The jams are sharp, but secure except for a couple loose chock stones fidgeting to pop out. The juggy face holds on the arete will cause less capillary bleeding....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
