Marc has Dodo and Houser Buttress combined which makes sense. Both Lucky Lady and Loose Lady are soft for the grade at Jtree. Lucky Lady takes a piece or two on the left side of Dodo before running through two bolts to rap rings on top. Just the next buttress right of Houser. Scramble over from the base of Loose Lady vs down and around, much less effort. Worth doing if you are there for Loose Lady. Same for Dummy's Delight.

Miramontes gives one sport route each at 5.10a and 5.10b 4 stars in his guide. I climbed them both back to back and where Run for Your Life (5.10b) felt like 5.11a, Loose Lady felt like 5.9 max. I am not much of a judge of sport routes, but I can tell you that Run for Your Life is a big step up from Loose Lady, both literally off the deck and physically. Dummy's Delight, 5.9, and Lucky Lady, 5.8, are both worth doing with with Loose Lady. Very sunny walls.
