3 out of 5 stars Balancy fun!

Undercling the flake to the right and then transition to the face. Climb up the face past the bolt on thin balancy holds to the large horizontal crack then work your way left to the hand crack which flares wider as you go up. My favorite route of the day! We top-roped this after climbing Ghost Dancer.

3 out of 5 stars Looks like a 9, climbs like an 8

Gear was better than expected. If you shop around, some of those pockets aren't so "thin" after all!

3 out of 5 stars Not as bad as it looks

This one looks real runout from the ground but in reality is well protected. The face moves are delicate but the bolt is in the right spot.
