Comments: This really isn't as bad as everyone says. Yes, it probably goes a bit harder than a 5.7 now that the feet have gotten polished but I wouldn't give it a "bomb" rating.
I set this up as a top rope last week and none of the 4 or 5 people that top roped it (on my gear) after me complained about the route.
This really isn't a great first lead anymore, but still worth climbing.

Comments: First route to the right of Sunburst. I will have to climb this again but it seemed more difficult than a 5.9+. I struggled through the crux on this route and then went over and flashed Jumpstart. This is a good route though and maybe it is more of a 5.9 red point route... we'll see.

Comments: This is a great route to do on top rope, would also be a fun lead if you have big enough gear. Lots of interesting moves on this route, it can be as difficult or as easy as you want it to be depending on how you approach it. Lots of fun.

Comments: This is a stellar route. From the bottom it looks there there are no holds at all but as soon as you start up it all the holds become apparent.

Comments: Pretty straight forward lead. Kind of difficult to protect the offwidth in the middle of the route.

Comments: This route is better than Pocket Puzzle. Thanks to Chris Bastek for giving me a guided tour of the ponds and putting me on this route. I did this one about 20 minutes after Pocket Puzzle both are great.

Comments: Stick clipping the first bolt on this would have been a good idea. Real crimpy up to the ledge then great the rest of the way up.

Comments: Brutal start on this route. I ended up down climbing off of it because I couldn't make it past the second bolt. I saw a guy climbing a 5.11 struggle with the start of this route. The rest of it looked fun though. Maybe if you stick clipped the first two bolts.

Comments: This is a good moderate to set up a TR on. TR setup requires some long webbing to sling some trees and a medium sized hex for good measure/directional. Lots of gravel at the top so belayers should have a helmet on. I wouldn't top belay this one for that reason also. People that aren't into crack climbing will still be able to climb this route.

Comments: This is a great option for anyone that wants to climb a great crack but isn't a great trad leader yet. The first pitch of Laceration Jamb is worth it. The last half of this climb is still pretty fun.
