3 out of 5 stars short and balancy face

I RP-ed Al Hussein, 5.11a B1 face variation. (B2 var. is the 5.10d lieback.) Very short and bouldery but fun. My first RP of a 5.11a.
BTW, the rock is called Platypus, not Western Addition. Western Addition includes 3 rocks: Platypus, Shady Rock, and Chew Tooth, all close to each other. See Rock Climber's Guide To Skyline Boulevard by Bruce Morris.
