Out There
Sultans of Swing 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b
  Jul 13 - Pleasant route to guide new leaders on, and a bit soft. More like 5.4.
Ruby Saturday Direct 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a
  Jul 11 - Fun climbing up an unlikely face. Creaky flakes and a soft (for the grade) crux.
Double Crack 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c
  Jun 29 - Took a double rack from yellow Alien thru yellow Camalot, as well as a small rack of Stoppers. Climbed it as a single pitch with little problem.
Coexistence 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b
  Jun 29 - Got back on this today after a 2-year hiatus from it. A purple mastercam fits perfectly about 10 ft up, but the remaining 10 ft to the ledge is R/X. As for the crux beta--it is fairly straight forward by Gunks standards.
