4 out of 5 stars The Vertebrae

Don't know where this route got its name. Great rock. Great locks. The book calls it a TR but I found it to be a very reasonable lead.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This is just left of The Sword, I believe. It is a thin crack just below the roof and exposed moves to a horizontal crack 4' above the roof. Tough fingerlocks and stemming finish it off.
