Using the GYB anchors it is possible to go up entirely left of the holds on the GYB route, moving up and left onto a small arete about half-way up and then moving even further left 2/3 way up onto right-most portion of black streak. To get up the overhanging upper headwall and end on the mossy topout right at the small tree, there is a fun sequence of moves that I won't divulge here. Probably would go at around 5.9 or so.

3 out of 5 stars 9 of 13 this day

Playing around on top-rope to the left of GYB. Bottom part is very licheny if try to go up too far left and while I think this would go as well, need to get in there with a wire brush and knock some of the moss and lichen off of the rounded slopers. More reasonable was to go up and onto small arete left of GYB and then from top of this arete go up left to finish upper headwall directly under small tree at top. Very fun sequence of doable moves at top.
