Techy cruxes split with good rests. If you feel like you're going to fall, just keep moving and you never know! Very classic, and takes good gear.

This one felt like sort of a milestone for me. Sent it 1st lead try after top roping it 3 times that day sussing the gear and the moves out. All while recovering from a horrible finger injury. Stoked!! Feels like 12a to me, comparable to Try to be Hip.

Dead vertical tech-fest; really fun route. Stemming, palming, edges and tips jams in a tight dihedral. The gear is easy to get in, mostly nuts and small cams. There are a few fixed pins up higher where the crack peters out.
