Start 20 ft right of Burger King(40 ft right of Obediah)in a shallow, open book corner with a small tree stub. Climb easy double cracks up to big ledge with small blocks stairstepped atop each other. Climb blocks into a right facing dihedral and climb up to roof with yellow lichen. Pass the roof(crux)and continue up wide crack/corner covered with yellow lichen to the top.
20 ft right of Burger King(40 ft right of Obediah) and 20-25 ft left of Blunderbuss. Rappel from fixed line or walk off.
Small to large cams with one #4 Camalot, a few small wires. Anchor off tree.

No offense Gents but these are almost certainly not FAs.
See the burger king description.
This area of the cliff has a wide variety of numerous ways to climb and to link starts and exits.
Which is why it was called Burger King, you can have it your way.
That was the area of cliff pretty much from Obediah right to big corner with Blunderbuss .
Most of this stuff is very broken up but will have short sections of decent climbing here and there. You will often find newer climbers doing things in this area because the broken nature makes it appear easier to find routes out. There are a number of fun exits on the right side up higher that go in the 10ish region. These appear to be the things you've just posted up.
Go for it and link to your hearts content. BTW - in that area of the cliff, a picture w/ lines drawn is best to show the variants you're trying to describe. Or, leave it a mystery and allow others the feel of the first.

I agree with Paul on this one. Nothing personal KC, but you will probably have to look a bit harder than the Overlook for an honest FA. Your descriptions are good, and if you want to edit the info a bit, I think they could remain, to help out folks in the future. Thanks, JJ
