Does anyone have any suggestions for technical 5.11-5.12 or V3+V7 slab routes/boulders in the Gunks? I have done the Mental Block slab and tried Devine Wind (will go back to it when the conditions are right). I've also done (top-roped) the middle line on the pebbles boulder (it felt mid-5.12), looking for more similar routes.

PS. by slab, I mean low-angle friction or thing fingers terrain.

Perhaps to the right of Sente? Things have been done there.

Ya! There's a cl;imb called Yente or Caliente or something like that. Basically climb straight up and gradually get farther away from dodgy protection. Could be tr'd, but what fun is that?

Yes, it's called Yenta. Almost protection-free, it may be toproped.
