Comments: For my partner and me, the obvious crux was the dyno to the third rail off the deck. Wouldn't want to deal with gear before this move, but wouldn't want to take the fall either. The route is much easier (and quite fun) after that.

Comments: There are new-looking bolts at the east end of the dome. We put a pair of leavers on these and rapped, but pulling the rope put a gnarly twist in it--next time I'd just walk off the back. There is also a new-looking, BIZARRELY located bolt a few feet back from this pair. It looks like it's not deep enough into the rock, and the nut is half an inch away from the hanger. It also appears to protect entirely flat ground with no exposure. Somebody practicing their drilling?

Comments: Fun! Loved the traverse. Would call it more like "hard 5.8" than soft 5.9.

Comments: Phenomenal. Interesting climbing down low. High crux is tricky and reachy, with a brutal body-sloper topout. Excited to project this one! In December, it was in the shade from noon (or earlier, dunno) to 4ish, then briefly in the sun again.

Comments: "A couple of bolts away from" the crux of Split Personality!

Comments: Traverse in from the left to avoid the worst rock. The crack is pretty easy (5.9? easier?) and low angle, but the placements are sketchy because of the rock quality. Just don't fall. The moves are fun throughout.

Comments: There were 18 people at this crag on Thanksgiving day, 2014, spread across several parties. Impressive.
