Ryan focusing on very thin feet and pick torques on this amazing golden granite.  Ryan Bogus getting a shake on an early ascent of the Ruff Route, Hidden Falls.  Michael Arnold on a very dry Dangler.  Without ice, it's likely in the M4 range (5.9) or so with cleats and tools.  Last one from the End O Daze at Hidden Valley.  Eli fin the middle of the roof crux on End O Daze.
