Red M&Ms 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  WA : Vantage (Frenchman Coulee) : ... : King Pins
Red M&Ms is a great stemming route that heads up the corner just right of George and Martha. Any actual holds on the route are small and some stemming skill is a bit of a necessity.

only 2 routes out of order:

Corner pockets is a little confusing, it is the next crack right of Split Beaver. Between the 2 routes Justified Ancients is bolts up a pillar for 1 pitch then continues on a column that is right of Corner Pockets for it's 2nd pitch and a variation continues past that 2nd pitch anchor to the top ( Acapulco Gold, 5.11b)

Catnip is left of Sinsemilla.
