Both routes share the same start up a right leaning crack/corner. ABout 50' up is a small ledge/ optional belay.

Sourballs (5.11) heads straight up through a roof and continues up right facing diehedral until turning into fairly runout 5.9 face climbing to the top. 190'

Serious pump on the last crux of this one. Bring a very healthy rack to 3 inches.

I loves me the steep stuff. There are rests all this baby if you're a little creative. Sourballs raminds me of the Tilted World routes at Shortoff. Can't wait to try some of the other lines on this section of wall.

Just amazing. though I dont recall it being over 110 feet, never the less a real pump fest with three crux's which have reasonable pre commit -bolder inspections. Steep and diagonal rise make it the climb to finish cus your not gonna hang here!
