3 out of 5 stars Highball

Short and powerful, only 3 bolts but stout for an 11a. Excellent warm up if you're chasing any of the harder climbs in that area!

3 out of 5 stars Blowing Smoke at the Monkey

Bit more of a bouldery crux than the other 11a's in the area.

4 out of 5 stars .

This should have went down long ago. Keep going once you hit the anchors for a better hold.
