Currently there is a project left of Tweak, it's bolted and has a red tag. I was hoping to send it this spring but was set back with an elbow injury. My hope is to get it done this coming fall. if someone feels this is unethical please contact me before you send it. If nothing else I would like to get some photos of the first ascent.

Not unethical at all when you put the effort into establishing the line. I hope your elbow continues to feel better so you can get back on the route.
