5 out of 5 stars Annual ascent

I have to climb this one at least once a year. The best 5.7 I know of.

5 out of 5 stars Finally got on this one

I've gone to other routes 3 times due to the line up on this one. It was good to link this with Corrugation Corner, but something better done on a week day when the numbers of people at the crag are down.

Short climbs in this set of boulders. Warm-up then hit the longer routes.

4 out of 5 stars Lantern

Crux required some creativity. I enjoyed that. For me a tenuous lay back with feet high got me through. You can cheat with the arete if you want but I think that takes the grade down quite a bit.

3 out of 5 stars A buck fifty

Fine for a warm-up but short. If it was longer I'd give you two bucks.

4 out of 5 stars Best climb of the day for me

Enjoyed this one as it was a bit longer than most of the routes in the area.

5 out of 5 stars Straight up

Really nice climb. There were a few spots where I could see where I needed to get to the next bomber hold but had a good stretch of sustained climbing in between. I had to slow down and figure things out more than normal on a 5.9 route.

4 out of 5 stars Face in or out

Very nice. Clean crack. Looks intimidating but did go at 5.7 as billed I think. Going out on the face for the start means it's a little ways before you can place pro, possible pendulum. Leader also needs to think about the follower and place plenty of pro in the lie back crack to prevent too much of a pendulum for them. Too bad this pitch is not part of a longer climb.

I say face in, my wife says face out?
