Comments: Monos are nice finger stackers. Def not 5.11 and just a little run out after the last bolt. Good route, get on it.

Comments: Monos weren't too bad, but not for the new 5.10 leader. Pretty much over after the mono moves.

Comments: Coke raps are at the end of "Classic" on a large dinner table size boulder. Easy to find if you look for the prominent "flying buttress" in the center of the crag.

Comments: Yes, best. I haven't done NS (overhanging jug haul?) but SAM is reachy and a little weird, this has great moves the whole way and a nice little rest, I like that. Whiskey of course is classic as well but not as accessible to mere mortals.

Comments: It's "Where Were You?" but the first pitch it called something different.

Comments: Classic JT crack climbing. Tricky jams in the left facing corner section.

Comments: One of the only easy climbs around here and good for a warm up. No ants for me either. Also, it starts out of the right side of the chimney not the left as stated in the description.

Comments: The trail is well established at this point and well cairned but your eyes peeled for important intersections.

Comments: Does this finish on the nice but short hand crack climbers right of Vanishing Point?

Comments: I think this is the route closest to the left corner? It has newer Fixe hangers. There's a separate route that has older SMC hangers to the right (left of James Addiction).

Comments: Got on the bolted section while doing Zig-Zag, ultra thin crimps. From the Mechanics Route belay there's an obvious horn on the left that leads to the bolts.

Comments: Just TR this thing and enjoy a great lieback. You need some long webbing or cord to set it up. I attempted to solo up to the #5 C4 placement but wigged out on some crumbly rock and decided to downclimb. To place a #6 before the crux I think it would have to get pretty deep meaning a very awkward move to get into it.

Comments: Start to the left of the bolt line only moving right at the finish.

Comments: More like a V1 highball, it took a few tries to figure out the start, then cruiser jams.

Comments: I started from the ground, seemed logical. Only runout for a little bit in easier terrain. If not for rock quality this would get a solid three stars. Yes, not 5.7.

Comments: This climb reminded me of the Van Halen Greatest Hits album "The Best of Both Worlds", a little DLR, and little Hagar, maybe some Gary Cherone there too. A right hand palming move proved key to reaching the first bolt.
