Description 

This is the right variation of a threesome of variations up a slab on the northwest aspect of this crag.

Continue up a slab with a footsy crux (a bit squeezed here, since you can reach left a touch bolts on the left variation). You could strain a bit harder and eliminate a good hold on the left to challenge yourself. You can also easily veer left and make the route go at 5.10. Go up to an overlap, choose the right of 2 options here. Find a second crux (10) and fire for the 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks on the right.

Some have called this 5.10.

Others have provided a name, Erika. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

This route starts the same as Quicksilver (which goes straight up the face through crimps over the roof 10c? Erica however moves to the right and over the roof via a large flake (at bolt 6), the crux is getting your feet set on the roof prior to continuing to the finish. As of today 6/10/13, there is only one (sissy) hanger at the top, you can however clip this and continue past it to the chains for Thunderhead, on the ledge and to the right.
