Comments: To me, the lower face section is the crux for sure, and definitely tricky gear. The finger crack is amazing 5.11 fingers.. can't be harder than, say, espresso crack, yeah?

Comments: this thing is a friggin gem! like wow.. I'll admit to having toproped it first (though perhaps not into submission), which is easy to do after climbing tombstone crack or another. the extension looks ridiculous and also a tad bold.

Comments: I tr'd this one and it felt wayy harder than AA. And, from the look of it, the gear is not there for a good bit... I guess it all depends on your stemming game.

Wow. this thing is seriously. flippin. crazy!!

Comments: really nice route.a #5 could definitely be used on the top of the 2nd pitch if you don't want to squeeze way inside.

Here's a pic of Gemstone. First pitch, at least, is definitely worth doing if up there. It is easy and quick to get to from the approach gully-gemstone gully notch. Can also get off with one 60 from the tricam shit anchor.

Comments: Would recommend linking 3+4 over 2+3.

If there is a (slow) party on Thin Ice, the direct start to Don Juan goes fairly reasonably. Pro is a little funky getting to the big flake, I clipped the second bolt or so on tradewinds. Pro is also a little weird once in the flake but it's pretty secure. So anyway, if you just can't wait, it goes.
