|Bruise Brothers Wall
A popular route that is super fun and a good example of the 5.11a grade in my opinion...
Start on thin holds climbing past a scar in the rock to better holds for an awkward move or two and then a rest looking up at a shallow corner with a crack in it... Jam or layback a few moves in the crack to more moderate but fun climbing to a mantel and the chains...
Between Fancy Pants 5.10c and Little Viper 5.10b...

Fun mantles and high steps make this a really enjoyable route. Definitely has two different starts. One could use the half moon with their right and use a left side pull, or skip the half moon and use a crimp out to the right. Start is close to the hardest part of the route actually.

I thought the start was definitely the hardest part. After being bored with climbing all the easy stuff at Bruisebrothers, I managed to onsight this (my first 11a onsight). I couldn't have done it if the route eases up significantly and gives ridiculously good rests the whole way. Still a fun route, and a nice addition to the ticklist.

This was also my first 5.11 and I onsighted it... which leads me to believe it is more like a 5.10 which other people say. I'm still happy about it though!
