Casey on Actual Parchments
As with almost every other route on this wall, The Actual Parchments offers an incredibly fun challange over steep sandstone terrain with varied moves, and of course, lots of chances to fall off... This route starts with a sharp and difficult pocket-pulling boulder problem (V4 or 5) past 3 bolts to huge jugs that make this route reasonable.
I stick clipped the second bolt, which mabe a good idea due to the boulder behind you if you fall.
Rest a bit then do the final huge deadpoint to a crimp (redpoint crux V4) and enjoy easy jugs up and left to the top of Director of Humor Affairs. Fun outing on good rock.
On the left side of the Turtle Wall, this line follows the left two of the steepest routes to link up with Director of Humor Affairs (5.11a)
Nice bolts, 7-9 depending on how many you clip. to chain anchors

As of 3/25/13, the second bolt is missing. It is still possible to do the route safely, just stick clip the 3rd. If you blow the opening moves, you won't hit the boulder behind you, and even if you do, it'll be just a tap. I blew the moves on one go and it was fine.
