Whistling Sphincter 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a
  Apr 26 - Clambered to anchor, made anchor, rapped down, critical L hand microcrimp eventually snapped. Possible crux move to crimp on block just a tad too far for me. Eventually got through it with hangs.
Pump Up the Volume 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c
  Apr 26 - TR flash with Svena.
Grandpa Gander 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b

Uncle Fester 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b
