The Einstein's pockets are unfortunately filled in with mud by nesting wasps nearly every season. If its been a while since the routes have been climbed, be prepared with a small flathead screwdriver to gently remove the soft fine mud, a long flexible blow tube to clean out the majority of the dust, and a tooth brush to finish the fine-tuned cleaning once all the mud is removed. The Asylum, presumably due to its northern aspect doesn't seem to attract the wasps.

The Einstein

A few corrections I know of

I/J Sicillian is likely 14a/b
K Power Gel Man is likely 14b
M Girls Don't "Fart"
N Silent But Deadly 13a/b

The Asylum
Not Listed: The first route encountered is Wicked Chicken 12a- slab to obvious black streak- 60 meters long-two ropes needed for rappel descent

A/B Tasmanian Devil and Looney Tunes are pitches 1 and 2 of the same line
C/D Swallow Your Tongue and Shock Treatment are pitches 1 and 2 of the same line
E Martini begins at a belay location above A/B and C/D left of G/H/I
F Dago- an unclimbed route up the obvious overhanging dark streak- obvious why this was the first route rapped into at Leslie Gulch

G/H/I: Twisted/Psycopath/Maddness- 3 pitches of 12a/13a/14a right of obvious overhanging dark streak. Link them into one mega 30+ bolt pitch and you have a endurance monster, and one of America's first 14c's. F/A- Mike Stoeger. Jul 13, 2016
