Out There
The Pedestal 5.4 4a 12 IV 10 VD 3c
  Aug 16 - First pitch did not feel like 5.4 to me...very sketchy and tricky movement on the traverse, and several moments where I was trusting some pretty tiny edges. Cool belay ledge, and the second pitch was fun.
Brinton's Crack 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b
  Aug 16 - Finally grew a pair and led this thing. Feels much harder in the summer when your sweaty hands slip out of every jam, but still an awesome, scary lead.
Upper Diagonal 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a
  Aug 16 - TR'd. Awesome climb...super pumpy. Did the weird left alternate start, which was one of the harder parts.
The Bastille Crack 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
  Jul 27 - Swapped leads...I took the odd pitches (1/3/5). Amazing climbing! Perfect 100th tick.
