George pulls the bulge.
This may be the leftmost of the obvious routes on the right side of West Slabs (there is a stray bolt to the left of the 3rd bolt). It begins above raspberry bushes.
P1. Start up blocky, slopey terrain to a bolt. Aim for another couple bolts above carefully pulling on a few fragile flakes. Pull up under a small bulge. Clip a couple bolts, and pull over. Angle right and up to an intermediate 2 bolt anchor (no rap rings & right one needs a wrench to tighten it). Continue up past 2 more bolts to a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor and rappable hangers, 85'.
P2. Climb moderate terrain with abundant horizontals to a 2 bolt anchor left of a tree, 5.5, 55'.
You can continue upward with another pitch, 5.9, gear, 140'. This seems so dissimilar to the lower pitches and had enough cleaning to do that it is likely a different route.
This may be the leftmost route of the right side of the crag. Its start appears blocky.
6 bolts, orange Mastercam, #0.4, #0.75, & #1 Camalots will cover it.

Pitch 1 is real nice. Would continue to the 2nd of 3 sets of anchors. One cannot see the 3rd set from the second set.
