There's a route or two right of Puckerfest, what are they? Jul 12, 2012
Don't think they have any names...

There are a couple of potential thin face routes (5.12+ range) that I don't know if anyone has done.

Further right, there's a good rail about 5' off the ground with a chunk that's about to break off at the left end. Start there, go up and left past a mono, then back right to an incut with some grass growing out of it. Drop from there for a V5 boulder problem (E. Roed?), or top it out in the 5.12 range (project?).

Right of that, you can start off of the back of the "Bullethole" rock (height advantage) and make a couple of moves before dropping off for a V4 boulder problem (E. Roed?), or continute to the top with a TR (5.11+? D. Shockley?) Jul 13, 2012
