5 out of 5 stars Classic!

Unusual climbing. I've never slung so many horns on one climb. Bring lots of slings! Several runout easy sections will keep your attention. Very hot in the sun. Amazing rock. Led p. 1 and 3. Gear to #3 camalot.

5 out of 5 stars Way cool!

Super fun crack that widens from hands to OW with excellent gear. The top looks like it should be easy due to the low angle, but the slick rock and widening crack made for a strenuous (for a 5.8) crux near the top, in my opinion. Cool knee-bar moves. Just make sure to bring your #4 camalot!

4 out of 5 stars Interesting route

Very unusual climbing for the grade. Well protected, featured and a little overhanging. Worth a go!

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic!

Great climb. Lay-back flake to continuous, straight-in jamming. Just fun!

4 out of 5 stars Tree Line

Easy cruser climb, but still interesting- very fun climbing. Led second pitch. Nice solid sandstone. A little runout (PG) near the top, where the crack widens to a series of squeeze-like ledges near the chains (maybe 20 ft between pro), but quite easy. Bring a couple of slings, the route meanders a little...

3 out of 5 stars Vawter's Dihedral

Fun, strenuous climb with many variations. The longer you stay left, the harder it is. Definitely an R-rated lead! Good walk-off to climber's left.

3 out of 5 stars New Toy

Climb starts inside a jumble of boulders, then climbs out and left. Plenty of excellent rest stances with great pro... a good first lead. The short off-width section was the most interesting, in my opinion.

Very fun... solid hands the whole way. Walk-off looked much worse than it was. Note to self: climbing cracks in sport shoes is generally a bad idea!
