Unknown 5.10a 

Left of Jewel of the Mild and right of the Brown Sugar Wall are two bolted lines not in the guidebook. An unknown 5.6 route goes up a low angle ramp. To its right is this route.

There is an obvious, left-trending crack below the first bolt. If the first bolt is a little too high for your liking, you can easily protect it with a number 2 cam, but the climbing is fairly easy and secure to the first bolt. Continue on up another bolted crack to a steep bulge. This is the crux and will probably cause you to slow down. The moves are around 5.10a. Figure it out and then make some more nice moves on up to the two bolt anchor.

It is worth doing (as opposed to the ramp route to its left).

This is a great route...well protected crux for the budding 5.10 leader.
