Original Sin is an excellent face climb out Eve's Cave. It is currently (as off April, 2011) the only route in the cave sporting hangers. Excellent and very delicate climbing through the beautiful slab (crux) lead over a small roof to a mellow seam.
This lies in Eve's Cave, up river from East of Eden.

This route is hard as balls. It's definitely the hardest 10 I have ever climbed. Mostly I am just referring to the crux sequence between the 4th and 5th bolts. Perhaps if you happen to be quite tall or really love slab climbing, it might not be as tough - But the crux felt like hard 11 to me. Otherwise, a good climb on great rock.
