Trying to find where these routes are located at Humphrey's:

Cornered (5.6)
Mischief (5.5)
Relapped (5.10)

If I understand it correctly they are higher up on a ledge. You scramble up a dirt gully (not sure exactly where) to reach a ledge. Rumble In the Jungle passes this ledge at some point? After the second pitch of that route you get to the same ledge of the end of 1st pitch of Cakewalk. I assume it's not the same ledge as this ledge has these routes:

Rematch (5.10c)
Sting Like a Butterfly (5.9+)
A La Mode (5.10b)

I think I figured out where Cornered, Mischief and Relapped are located. Just up the hill (left) from Three brushes etc, there is a big inside corner with a big crack there. That is Cornered and the other two to the right.

I also saw a reference to a route called "Escapade" (which has bolts) above Cornered in this area. I have not been able to find any other mentions of this route.
