Comments: Fun route!!! Heads Up, clipping hold at second bolt seems a little suspect....

Comments: Direct start adds fun steep climbing with little chance for recovery before launching into the meat of the route. It felt solid at 12d.

Comments: Two really fun 30 foot climbs separated by 20 feet of 5.7. Tricky right from the start through the scoop to some easy terrain. Fun technical climbing leads to the anchor. I think the last 2 bolts could be pulled and one placed between the two.

Comments: Great route. Interesting diablo technical climbing on the bottom half to a good rest. Pumpy climbing with difficult moves right at the last bolt on the top half. My favorite in the runway area.

Comments: Another runway route with devious crux sequence down low and a surprise at the last bolt getting to the anchors. Overall the climbing is fun with a few rests to ease the forearm burn. Several times I was tempted to move onto the adjoining route and had to force myself back onto the bolt line. This is the only reason I give this 3 stars instead of 4

Comments: After climbing at the red for a week I really enjoyed the nature of this route. Great line, fun movement, and exciting exposure combined into what I thought was a 5 star route. I'm kind of partial to technical climbing.

Comments: Moderate 5.10+ climbing gets you to a good rest at 3/4 height. Crank the overhanging headwall to the anchors. If you have good crimp skills this will seem a little easy for the grade.

Comments: Currently there is a project left of Tweak, it's bolted and has a red tag. I was hoping to send it this spring but was set back with an elbow injury. My hope is to get it done this coming fall. if someone feels this is unethical please contact me before you send it. If nothing else I would like to get some photos of the first ascent.

Comments: interesting and fun movement through the bulge. Would be nice to have a lower bolt so you don't have to bring a stick, or clip the first bolt from the precarious stance.

Comments: Climb The first 5 bolts of Rickety Rock and head left at the roof clipping 2 new bolts and climb the upper arete of Box of Chocolates. This route combines the best of both climbs with an airy crux sequence.
