Anyone know the names of the two new routes off the Flake immediately left of Tumbling Dice? Lefthand one was long (65 meters from the ground), moderate, and still a bit loose; righthand seemed about 10d/11a and was quite good! Dec 26, 2017
The long one is The Gambler the route to it's right is Roll Me. Dec 26, 2017

Thanks Jeff. Accidentally got on Roll Me thinking it was Tumbling Dice. Great route. Lowered down to the top of the flake and climbed The Gambler and (the real) Tumbling Dice afterwards just for kicks. Apparently the first ascensionist visited my partner while she was belaying to inquire as to what I was doing but by the time I was down he was gone - bummer! Would have liked to have thanked him for the additions. Dec 28, 2017
