So, what is the cliff band between the lower Zipper and Rattletale? (just below the very overhanging sport routes)

 

I recall seeing the "Index Eliminator" or "Eliminator" cliff mentioned somewhere. Is it this cliff band? You see it when you top out on Rattletale. It seems to have potential for a few fun routes, but presently seems to have no free routes. Near its right side is a horizontal roof with a thin crack. Several pins are in this crack. What is this line?

I see in the Clint guide, in the overview of the UTW, a cliff called "Eliminator". But it is further left from the one I describe above. Anyone done anything on either cliff?

Found my SVR copy.

From that and what Max told me, all my questions have been answered. The cliff is Furry Green Atom Bowl, which I guess is also the name of the aid route through the roof that I saw. Further west is the Index Eliminator.
