Do these numbers refer to something? For instance, I got on route #8 in the topo, I thought was an 11+, and when I got to the roof block, there seemed to be 3 options but it wasn't obvious which was which. Heading right had lots of rope drag around a sharp corner and hollow blocks to pull on, up looked loose and scary, and left required me to downclimb, back-clean a draw, and then traverse left.
I guess I just not sure what route I actually got on.
I see that this photo was posted in 2007, so I imagine that there has been a lot of development since then and many newer bolts. Perhaps my question is whether there is a newer topo for this area that might be posted somewhere?

|I believe a guidebook is in the works... Sorry for the unexpected adventure but I do remember #8 is a solid 11 through the blocks and straight up that awkward flare... I grovelled through somehow. You might have the second ascent on that one!|
