3 out of 5 stars Telegraph Road

Don't climb in the canyon much besides Learning to Crawl. Lots of those 11s are pretty sharp. It was pretty cold this morning and the route was in the shade; my hands got cold but friction was good so the top wasn't as pumpy as per the summer when I first got on this route. Fun route, I didn't clip the last bolt as I was at the anchors by then. I was told that the anchors used to be higher so the last bolt was more useful then. This route is likely easier for shorter people because the feet aren't as high if you're shorter.

4 out of 5 stars Slopey

Got on this route a few times before. Ending is slopey and like someone else mentioned the feet are quite high. Easiest to clip the chains at waist level and skip the last bolt. Stout for the grade compared to others.

4 out of 5 stars Great movement.

This route is a great compliment to Blood of the Dead, but a notch up in difficulty. Even though you could probably clip the chains from beneath the roof, all routes were originally intended to be topped-out. High (and poor) feet make the final traverse moves difficult.
