Comments: The anchors are in kind of an awkward place for leaders-- requiring 2-3 moves above a slanting ledge after the route feels like it's over. I imagine that they're all the way up there so that the rope doesn't rub too much when toproping, but I wonder if it would be better to put them down where they could be threaded from the ledge.

Comments: I think I want this to be my first 5.10 gear route. Is the initial runout a problem for someone new to the grade?

Comments: There's a large plate about 6' above the big crystal that is beginning to ring hollow and was seeping a little water from the bottom. I don't think it's ready to fall yet, but if water's getting behind it, it probably won't last many more winters.

Comments: The crux is so very tense...3 stars for all of the swears I muttered while committing myself to those moves. The bolts are exactly where you need them, just move thoughtfully (and I'm the kind of person that wishes every route had an extra bolt or two).

Comments: Fun but short. It was quite wet today, which caused me to take my first fall on gear in like 4 years. On a really crappy nut, which miraculously held!
Maybe don't plan on doing this one during spring runoff.

Comments: I left the wires on the ground and definitely wanted them in the first half of the crack.
More fun than the left route, I think.

Comments: Linking the two pitches is possible with a 60 but really not recommended.

Comments: Good route but not much gear until you reach the first tree. After that, it's fine.

Comments: Full value 5.7. Direct finish feels like modern 5.8 and is easily the best part of the route.

Comments: This looks rad. What other OW's have you done around Boulder? So far I've only done Huston. Looking for more.

Comments: Remarkably different style compared with the route to the left, despite the fact that they join. Definitely do both.

Comments: I guess technically it should be R, but the ramp feels so trivial, there's no fear and/or loathing.
Kinda fun to do three hand jams in a row at a sport crag.

Comments: I don't think weirdness adds difficulty. 5.7 offwidth can feel like 5.10 until you learn how to climb OW.. I think the same applies to alien nesting sites.

Comments: Big, loose block, right above the 3rd bolt if I remember correctly. If it fell, it would chop the rope for sure. Watch yourselves.
