New Cottontop routes?

I'm wondering if anyone knows what the two newish routes between Intergalactic Orcas and Psycho Wrangler are. One starts just to the right of I.O., traverses right, then goes up the arete (i'm not talking about the I.O. extension thing). The other is just to the left of P.W., has permadraws, and goes allll the way to the top. Both look real hard.

The 2nd edition guidebook is slated for spring! Kirk Bjorling and I bolted the one to the left of Psycho Wrangler. Some asswipe told Jeremy Rhee that we'd already done it and he snagged the first ascent before we got back to it. Wink It's called the Rhesist (5.13c). Really good. three stars.

Ethan Geyer and someone else bolted the arete feature to the right of Intergalactic Orcas. Still a project. 12bish up to the sit down on the ledge. The arete is nasty and sharp. Probably 13dish. Open project.

Not that you asked but...Kirk bolted and sent another nice 5.11a to the left of the long 5.7 crack Cotton Gin and Tonic called Fireman's Belay in honor of the forest fire fighting partner Ian Pohowsky who belayed him on the send.

I put up a short but incredible 13a at the very far left end of the crag called Hillside Strangler. I think that's all the new ones since the book came out...I'll go up and hike around to make sure.

Oh, there's a new 12b to the right of boll Weevil and tamarin. I forget who bolted it.

And project #7 to the left of Job Salvage is now a 12b or c...can't remember what I called it. Something making fun of Kenny Parker...man, I can't remember.
