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.
