4 out of 5 stars Fun climb

Varied climbing. I'd rack a half set of nuts (every other), slings, doubles .5-1, and a 3 or 4 for near the bottom. There are lots of gear options though.

4 out of 5 stars Sweatee

The humidity must have been around 80% when I did this one and it was dirty from recent rain. A distinct endurance crux where the wall steepens, the feet go away, and the crack diverges. Real good route although the bottom half can be quite dirty. Some of the footholds are shiny so be careful.

4 out of 5 stars Sustained and burly crux....

This is a fantastic climb. Felt more like a 5.10c to me. The gear is bomber and the movement is fun.

5 out of 5 stars _

apparently this used to be 5.9+ - sandbag! Nice varied climbing with a mix of face holds and jams. The crux is towards the top in the double cracks. Mostly green camelots (.75) and smaller gear. A couple other climbers told me this route is sometimes dirty but I found it to be clean with good climbing - just 15' of crap to plow through at the beginning.

3 out of 5 stars Warm up?

We forgot our guide books and I thought this was a 5.9; whoops! It did not go very well...need to do this again for sure.
