We explored this cliff, because I wasn't aware of previous documentation and because it offered shade on hot days (June 11 and 18).

I just found this comment on the Piz Badille page; perhaps it refers to this rock outcrop:

Just finished up an old project with EVD close to the Pizba. This place is awesome because there is sense of solitude, potential, and albeit roadside, adventure. The route we finished had a name that would be appropriate for Bernard's book, 'Man's best friend.' Although I wanted to call it 'Guardians of the Ass Fortress.' Maybe that could be the new name for the old 11a finger crack?

Perhaps the "old project" is our Unknown Right Arete. Perhaps the "old 11a finger crack" is our Unknown Right Crack, which was mostly a finger crack and had a fixed Wild Country Rock (tips-size) near the top.
