5 out of 5 stars My first low rent yosemite route

Really esthetic route. Too bad I fell on the slab. 90 degree heat but OK. The slab is probably the crux, but the stem higher is close. Sustained, clean and fantastic the whole way. Good route to practice your laybacking technique.

5 out of 5 stars So Sexy

Beautiful corners abound. The variation, length, and lack of grovel make this route stellar. Good clean hard fun. Brought my whole bag of tricks and and had to learn some new ones on the fly. Thanks sweet mistress

5 out of 5 stars Silk Road

Hard ass route, every pitch is steller. The bolts on the 5.11 slab pitch need to be replaced.

5 out of 5 stars Balls out

One hard ass route. Every pitch accept for a few are .10++ or harder. Some of the anchors are in a dumb ass spot and the bolts on pitch 8 need to be replaced (leepers) but other than that its pretty good. I felt like most of the crux pitches were over rated (grade wise)accept for the first and second pitch which I felt were under rated. Fun clean climbing, a must do on the Cal Dome cercuit.
