Sourigno Outsama on Body Snatcher 5/4/13
Sustained vertical face climbing leads past 7 bolts up and left to an exciting finish. Route is somewhat gritty in places but also has some great features, including some interesting horizontal pockets about halfway up.
3rd class scramble up from the base trail to a hidden ledge and belay from the tree 20' feet right of the obvious "Bear Crack" route.
7 bolts to lower off anchor. Can be top-roped by rapping in from chains above at the very top of the cliff.

Body Snatcher. A dark story by Stevenson:
5.12a? Hard to say, but that's about right. Pump off the bulge at the top and your belayer will have to catch you (exciting, but safe).

One of the better routes out here. Definite crux low, and then sustained the whole way. A bit of excitement high. I agree with jerry--12A, a touch harder than stone free.
