The Outspoken is the first bolt line on the left and a sweet climb for the grade! Not quite as difficult as its .10c neighbor but a little more sustained. Start on small crimps below the first bolt and work straight up, passing two more bolts. The crux is protected by the first bolt but there are several more delicate moves higher up in the .10a-b range. A must for the Cemetery! Rappel to descend.


3 bolts, bolted anchor

A definite thin crux past the 1st bolt as you negotiate sidepulls to a big pinch. Once past the crux the holds improve and fun climbing up large plates leads to the anchors. Seems about as difficult as the nearby Changing Forms, but not nearly as sustained.

Crimpy. The whole way up.
