Comments: Really fun route, but beware you absolutely must have a 60m rope and be sure someone on the ground tells you your rope is down, as it will still barely make it...my friend actually had to hop off the bottom of the rope after rap'ing down! just a foot or so though :)

Comments: Lots of fun, great warm up route. As shown in the link above, this route is actually the *2nd* route from the left side now. The end is a bit tricky, but just go for it and you'll find the holds are quite sufficient :)

Comments: Definitely run out between the 3 middle bolts, can be intimidating for newer leaders. Feels a lot harder than a 5.8 when the rock is wet; this area spends a lot of time in the shade, so it doesn't dry up quickly.

Comments: Great fun, lots of ways to go play here. Be careful if it has rained recently this area does not get a lot of direct sunlight, so the deeper cracks will stay wet for a while, and you'll need to use the ledges (and a few jugs) on the arrete instead.

Comments: Can be top roped from the 5.8 climb on the right side of eastern block, "Attack of the Butter knives". Some interesting moves at the beginning, but then merges with the 5.8 for a pretty easy, but still enjoyable finish.

Comments: Fun longer climb! They may have added a bolt recently near the anchors, because there was definitely 7 bolts when I climbed it yesterday. I wouldn't exactly say there are no cruxes because there are some interesting moves when you are leading it, but it's certainly an easy top rope for any confident beginner.

Comments: Good first lead for confident climbers, and similarly a great TR for confident new climbers, but may be a bit too long for those who are less confident (we had a few newbies that had to turn back).
