Mother of Pearl is a linkup of 3 shorter pitches. Awesome and varied climbing the entire way. Very heady start though, beware.

Tick Fever is excellent with an exciting finish.

Mexican Crack is fantastic, but it sounds like it's a bit easier than what you are looking for.

I have not yet been on the Trinity Cracks, but the Left Trinity is pretty cool looking and it's high on my list.

Although not a trad climb, All Chalk and No Action is well worth a burn
if you're in the area. Amazing cutter edges.

Have fun.

Thanks CrackMD (oh yeah, that is a good picture of you on Incredible Finger Crack... hoping to get down into the slot this week or next with the Kaibab forest closing)

Anyone else with suggestions, they are always appreciated

also a good recommendation on guides to LCC and BCC would be great (have the Falcon Guide to the Wataschs but I find the genre of guides to be mediocre

Mid August will be way too hot, but here you go:

Coyne Crack - 11+
S-Cradck - 11+
Gordon's Direct 11-
Stormy Resurrection 11-
Spring and Fall 11
Coffin Roof 12-
Right Trininity 12-
Looney Tunes 11-

You should widen your net...there are a ton of great 5.9 and 5.10 routes.

For cooler stuff, go up to Lone Peak and try Jolly Green Giant.
