The climb originally ended at the ledge (5.11a), but the extension continues up and left by clipping the anchor (use a long sling) and then punches out the bulge above on horrible crimps to anchors at the top of the formation.Long and technical in nature, this packs a lot of crimping into it's length despite being broken up by the ledge midway. The extension is still cleaning up some, so don't be surprised if some small holds break off. ...[more] Browse More Classics in California

There's an additional route between Filet of Sole and Testosterone Crack. Two bolts are visible from the ground, but presumably some gear is typically used between the bolts. I didn't climb it, so I don't have enough info to add it as a route directly. It starts in a dihedral, then onto an arete with features. It's about 8 ft to the right of Filet of Sole, but left of the big offwidth cracks that are ~ 5ft and 12 ft to the left of Testosterone.
