Enduro Man is another good North End route that doesn't see a lot of traffic. While maybe not as aesthetic as some of it's neighbors, it has great rock, interesting moves with a well-defined crux, and tricky but good gear. Oh yeah, and it's steep too.
Between the Recommendation and Filet. Look for a shallow, overhanging dihedral/crack system with melons about ten feet left of Filet. While you can do the same start as for Filet, it is also possible to do an unprotected 5.9ish start to the left that makes it an independent line- recommended.
All gear. A set of nuts (with micros), small to medium cams, and Tri-cams (read: necessary) will suffice. The gear is all good, but kind of tricky in spots and therefore very pumpy to place.

a good one for training your sloper form; doesn't get the traffic worthy of its quality.
