4 out of 5 stars Beautiful Rock

12a/b? Some guy told me it was a 10d and when I get down from the onsight I look and the old book has that grade? Why did the new book downgrade so much? 5.fun no matter what

4 out of 5 stars HCR 2/21-2/23

Does not feel 12a/b. More like 11b. The moves are sustained, but good rests most of the way up. Fun route, and gorgeous to look at.

4 out of 5 stars Filthy Sanchez

Sustained, then, balancy climbing, with a reach dependent crux. If you are 6-2, and can casual reach to a cripmp midway, this route might feel like a 5.11-. At 6-0, the deadpoint felt like 12a to me. If shorter, you'd have to dino to the crimp, making it harder yet.
*Beware of a lost block and a lavender colored loose flake right next to each other.

4 out of 5 stars Balancy and Sustained

First, you have to pull a move harder than 5.10c to get off the ground. There is a distinct crux with some balancy arete moves, but the thing that makes this route hard is that it's extremely sustained up until right before the anchors. Somewhere in the 5.11+/5.12- range sounds right to me.
