G-Man Extension (AKA Book'em, Dano)

(Title edited to reflect the First Ascensionists Comments. I kept Book'em Dano since that is what the route is shown as in the Supertopo guidebook)
Trend right past a thin crack on huge knobs from the belay for Nurdle. This pitch can also be linked with Knob Job or G-Man for a full 60m experience.
Clip a bolt and pull a few hard moves to get established on a huge knob. Clip the final bolt, mantel the large flat knob and hope you are at least 5' 10" or taller.
Those that can't reach the next hold will have to jump. The grade here is proportional to your height and ability to dyno without handholds.
Once the distant hold is reached make some powerful pulls on knobs and incuts to gain the top.
This pitch starts on the ledge halfway up the wall above the main approach trail. Start Via Nurdle, Knob Job or G-Man
Two bolts and .5" cam (green alien)
There is a rap station at the top and you can descend with two 60 meter ropes.

This is not Book 'em Dano.
Book 'em Dano goes out the diagonal line of knobs out to the right and them up to the top of the cliff, 5.10b.
This climb is an extension of G-Man and is meant to be climbed in one pitch, 55 meters.
