I don’t have access to a guidebook at the moment to see the ascentionists names, or climb dates, so what I’m about to say could be misinformation…
Depending on the grades involved, they could be routes done by Bob Cowan / John Schwerdferger and company.
I know they put up stuff down in that area including back across right (looking at cliffs from climbers perspective), towards the open slabs that have a short section of chain in the middle of, to assist safe down climbing?
They climbed mid twenties comfortably (and a lot harder), and for a while (late 90’s), were working stuff in that section including all the way up to Banana Blase area…
They were pretty good at documenting what they did so I might be giving you a red herring, but if you need to contact Bob, I can pass on your details to him at the last known contact I have for him.
