4 out of 5 stars Deimos

Ever bit as good as Phobos. When you combine Phobos and Deimos, it makes for a great day of climbing. With Kevin from Las Vegas, I led all the pitches. The chimney move through the large crack might be the best part. The best belay is right below that huge chockstone. The second pitch is a bit squirrelly in comparison, making you run out right and then back left, but easy climbing. The last pitch has a bolt and you wonder why until you are face climbing right at it with a ledge below. Kind of a reachy move and perhaps the crux of the route.

3 out of 5 stars Not as fun as Phobos

but not a bad warm-up. First climb for the Tuolumne 2011 trip. First roof was tough for me, I got tunnel vision and stayed in the crack for too long.

4 out of 5 stars A little bit

more wide stuff on this one compared to Phobos and some roof moves to negotiate as well. Remember that face climbing around crack features is encouraged. I can't imagine getting through the upper crux without the bolt...

4 out of 5 stars Don't remember when

Was OK, but was missing the bolt in the topo, which made the last pitch fairly heady for me at the time.
