Comments: Definitely not "Underoos for Kangaroos." I'll see if it's in the book, but we've just been calling it the Arete Route. Even the guy who bolted it can't remember what he named it.

Edit: found here: mountainproject.com/v/left-of-...

Comments: Not to be a downer, but I've always heard Juicy Fruit is a V1. Maybe a V2.

Comments: More like a 5.10a. I also believe that's what Jacob established after bolting it as well.

Comments: Guidebook shows 5.10a. Difficulty can be a bit height-dependent.

Comments: Rather sustained climbing. Requires an eye for route-finding. A few spots for no-hand rests.

Comments: Falling off the angled traverse could possibly do some damage to your rope. A fun climb, but as it's rarely climbed, it's usually dirty.

Comments: Rarely climbed but very worthwhile. Very airy if you don't place gear.

Comments: Doesn't seem to be climbed as much as it should be. Features stemming and bulges and thin face climbing.

Comments: Stellar route: balance-y moves and several no-hands rests. The last moves can be a bit scary. 2x I've gotten bail gear at the last bolt.

Comments: cool shot, but wrong route. Viking Blood is across from that, on the free-standing boulder. that route--if your location is correct--is a 5.10d named, last I heard, "Unclaimed."

Comments: retro-bolted to make clipping first/second bolts less dangerous. 4 bolts + anchors.
