On Into the Gayle on a beautiful late October day.


A moderately overhung traverse consisting of 3 bouldering-type problems that get progressively harder. Don't rest too long in between each one or Gayle will beat you down.

Entirely unique and special and just maybe perfection.


On the wall just to the right of Jugernaut.


The mad bolter of NM strikes again - totally well protected (thanks Vaino).

Fun route traverses left to right, resist the urge to go too high and get on the slab. Also check out the two new routes to the right and the new far left route.

Enjoyable route. I had some trouble figuring out the hand sequences through this route. Something fun to work on for sure and very well protected. Gracias Vaino.
