Recommended routes here include Delirious (5.11b), Nostalgia (5.11c), American Dream (5.11d), Leviathan (5.11d), Swank Nostalgia (5.12a), Vendetta (5.12a), Triple Trouble (5.12b), Hanging by a Thread (5.12c), The Zone (5.12c), Trepanation (5.12c), False Alarm (5.12d), Mojo (5.13a) and The Ultimate (5.13a).
