Progressively more difficult climbing through tthe first half broken up by jug pockets. Big moves to an OK rest then a final boulder problem to the anchors.Start up a low angle slab to the left of the bolt line. Reach out and clip the first bolt then move up into some slots and a pinch on a block, clip bolt 2. Thin face climbing leads to the 3rd clip.

#9 is Rhumba of the Toads, FA in the late 90's, it is hardish 11.
I did not bolt the top, as it its easy, bring a nut to get you safely to the anchor, unless someone has bolted the top since I last saw it.

Tom Ellis, Luke Laser and I bolted Number 4. Tom and I bolted numbers 7 an 8. All sometime in late 90's. I can't remember if we named the three routes or not. Not sure who is responsible for the glue on the projects to right of Ride the Lightening as I quit climbing for a period of time shortly after bolting the routes. We also bolted the extension to Ride the Lightening and I think Tim possibly went back and added beefy anchors to the top of it.
