Comments: Wait, there were already some scribes in the wall so you thought it'd be cool to add more? And it's no biggie because it will erode away? Proud FA brah, tell me more about how much of a tool you are...

Comments: Traversing the hollow undercling from the right adds some excitement to the start. The moves popping out of this hold are great!

Comments: The start isn't too bad even without pre-clipping the 1st bolt. It's one really thin move to gain an edge below the undercling which puts you withing reach of the clip. The crux is very sequential with pretty long reaches and bad feet.

Comments: I'd say the 10d rating is definitely for the direct start, flaring off-fingers with no feet. Tape is a good idea on this one, it doesn't see much traffic and between the lichen and the sharp nature of the rock your mitts may get shredded.

Comments: The mysterious feature is rather painful and can be avoided once the right feet have been found. Big moves on great rock, stick clipping the 1st bolt may be advisable as the very first bit it kind of friable.

Comments: There seems to be a new bolt for a more direct start instead of clipping the bolt which is shared with the 5.9/7 to the right. I used a decent .5 getting there.

Comments: Much harder than SR which is all about stretching to a jug. Fungus is a relatively big move to a piss-poor hold. V5 feels right.
