3 out of 5 stars Breakthrough route

This was my first 5.12. Thin moves at bottom followed by jug haul with good rest to a 3-move crux on greasy slopers.

3 out of 5 stars Want to bag a 12a?

Pretty chill 12a, 11 climbing to a solid rest then bouldery sequence to the chains. Churl.

3 out of 5 stars Rhetoric

This was my first 12a, though many think it's not 12a. It may be height dependent. My first time sending this route was with a different beta than I use now. It was harder with long moves and compressiony. Now I use a beta with an undercling to gaston on what most other's pinch. Couldn't get the pinch to work - might be lack of armspan.

4 out of 5 stars Fun and easy 12

Easiest 12a in the park, if it weren't for the crux move at the top, I'd call it an 11b/c. Mucho fun.

3 out of 5 stars Soft

Pretty soft for the grade. Only one semi-difficult move on it.
