Eat My Shorts 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
  Dec 31, 2017 - Easier than its neighbor to the left but still tricky. Little sandbagged at 5.7.
Friction Face Panty Waist 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c
  Dec 31, 2017 - Super fun and safe slab climb but it’s probably closer to 10a than 8+. Probably not a good lead for someone new to slab.
Plastic People 5.10b/c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b
  Dec 31, 2017 - Technical bit to the second bolt on the traverse then 5.9 jug haul around the roof. The crux is probably somewhere on the slab but everything above the roof kind of felt like 5.10 slab climbing. Must do if you like slab. Super fun movement.
The Prow 5.4 4a 12 IV 10 VD 3c
  Oct 4, 2016 - Most exposed 5.4 on the planet?? Love The Prow and beats the hell out of exiting the descent gully

Probably pumped and smiling. Just after the crux.   Little further up nearing the bulge.   Pitch two. Awesome exposed jug haul on slightly over vertical face.   Nearing the slightly over vertical crux on the second pitch. Sustained climbing.   Going up Dopey Duck
