Comments: Stem to an undercling on a large block. Work up the slab to a shelf and the green lichen end face with nice holds and a crack on the right. Exercise caution with the large block/chock stone near the top.

Comments: Locker...the part about the three buttonheads/keyhole hangers is an important detail NOT to be left out of a write up. A huge oversight! You've done better work. We're gonna die!

Comments: ^^^+1^^^ in support of Tristan B's advice regarding being a good steward for our unique play areas.

Just an observation, but loppers are typically used to cut and/or prune PLANTS.
When trimming PANTS scissors produce a more precise cut. It's debatable whether loppers will even cut pants.
