What is the route to the right of this one?

I believe it is Tough Shed and goes at 5.10. I've also heard it called B&C.

Harder than Tuff Shed, especially below the last bolt for short people as it seems to require stemming between two faces and shimmying up to the next stance to clip. Also belayer stated wasps came out of a crack around bolt 3 after I passed. I didn't see them, so they were not pissed off at me apparently.

Fun route, I liked the top. About the same degree of difficulty as Tough Shed. Maybe just a little harder at the finish.
