There is a new route on the left side of Quercus Wall just left of the Moustache Women/ Clean Shaven Girls now. "Bought and Not Paid For"- 5.10 b/c. Trad. Gear to 2". 35m. FA. Todd Gerhart. Prep. Chris Small. 2016. Follows nice finger crack to large ledge. Follow right traversing cracks from first ledge to top. Climbing the portion to the first anchor goes at a more moderate 5.8 or 5.9 with the difficulties occurring after the mid station. Super nice and sustained climbing in upper portion. Pics below.
The traversing nature of this route makes it difficult to clean on rappel. Have the second clean it on top rope if you are using a 70m rope or alternatively lower to first anchor and belay or rap from there if you are using a 60m rope.
