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.
