While not classic like Four Play or The Wizard, Ocotillo, a 7 bolt 5.11d established by Scott Ayers, is a nice puzzler on quality stone. Laybacks, edges, crimps, and delicate footwork lead to a rest. A short rail traverse brings one to the chains.
I immensely enjoyed deciphering a sequence near the third bolt. Left or right? After my initial attempts were thwarted I switched sides only to switch back on my next try.
