Gun For Hire

Steep edging and crimpy, climb up thru huecos. Balancy moves, tricky sequences.
First route on the right from the arete, there's a nice seat in a boulder in front of it.
7 Bolts to cold-shut anchor.

I believe it's 7 bolts to the shut anchor. From the ground it looks as if the bulge towards the top is going to be the business. However, I found the large hueco (3rd maybe) to be difficult and provided zero rest. Nice little knee hook inside made it easy to go left for a crimp.
Thanks Jack for providing such fun entertainment!

Very nice line that i couldn't finish on lead, today. Four bolts up, trying to pull through the slight bulge, proved very! difficult for me. I was able to complete it later on top rope. Very good line, and will have to come back to this one.

Similar in difficulty to "Good to be Awake" but of lesser quality. It's somewhat sustained once you leave the huecos and the rock in the crux area isn't the best with some obvious broken holds.

Balancy footwork and thin crimpy hands after third hueco. I gastoned the jug by the fifth bolt with my left hand for the clip and it felt awkward and less than ideal. Pretty sustained climbing throughout however there are a couple of good rest spots.
