Commitment

5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a (3 p)

Jan 15, 2011

Jamcrack

5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a (2 p)

5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a (1 p) 

CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : 15 - Knob Hill

Led. Don't know how close you have to stay to the bolt to 'be on route'. Easy enough about 4' to the right before cutting back over.

Dec 12, 2010

Sloth Wall

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : 15 - Knob Hill

Swan Slab Chimney

5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a (1 p)

Led to TR Grant's Crack & finish with a 5.6 OW. Even easier the 2nd time - would be a good free-solo.

Penelope's Problem

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p)
