Out There
The Broach 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a
  Jun 9 - HD. Burly but reasonable, hardest part was at the end. Seemed to take good gear.
Welcome to Watauga 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c
  Jun 9 - Jun 10, 2016 Lead / Fell/Hung. Wet at the crux. Fixed nut at start of roof back thanks to me :/ 2nd pitch is hard reachy & weird
Harpoon 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a
  Jun 9 - Feels 5.9 to me.
Pooh Corner 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c
  May 27 - Hung all over it but starting to figure it out. Burly relentless overhang with mostly great holds. Gear a little tricky in spots.

Crop of photo shamelessly swiped from Jeff M (sorry!) I'll maybe try to get a better one at some point but not sure when I'll be in position.   Partner popping up through the first crux also showing rope line and gear for the upper part of P1. More options available although it's all on the small side.   Go home <a href='http://climbingweather.com' target='_blank' rel='nofollow' >climbingweather.com</a>, you are drunk.  Top of the opening chimney section  Rope on the route.
