Climb the flakey stone on the left wall of the dihedral. It bounces from the face to the dihedral to the arete (crux) and then back into the dihedral. This route, though somewhat of an afterthought, is a good warm-up and provides an easy inspection of H3.
This is on the left wall of the dihedral.
5 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

This is a fun route that serves at a good warm up. Moderate, some what steep climbing leads to a tricky sequence at the 4th bolt. Definitely the best warm-up at the crag.

Seemed to be harder than Hip Op at 11b.

The dihedral is super chossy, pulled a baseball chunk out of it. Not straightforward, pumpy, hardest 10 I've been on in a while.

This route was miserable. I'd rather warm up hanging draws bolt to bolt on The Hipster than climb this again. Feet were crumbly in the slab crux. Very lame.

I agree with PRad. This route is better left undone IMO.
