Comments: Not to add to the confusion, but "tall dihedral" actually does sound reminiscent of a Dave A. problem back there. I'd need to see a photo though...

Comments: For being only 2 moves long, this thing packs a punch. The feet are bad and the last move is wild. Very cool. I think it could also have a traverse in from the right which would be really hard…

Comments: Same Cordless pad (and same color shirts) as in the photo taken 12 YEARS prior (see next photo in this series). Awesome.

Comments: Great problem! I would suggest adding the description for the "extension" (off of the big sloping pocket up and left) here, instead of under Project 10.

Comments: The falcons have nested on the ledge above Soy Chango. I think the closure really should cover the whole cliff. My son and I went out yesterday thinking we'd be able to climb on the right wall, but their location does not allow it. I tried to climb Crazy Horse, thinking we'd be out of the way, but I was dive bombed repeatedly by one angry falcon mid-route. We bailed so we wouldn't disturb them (and so that I wouldn't get killed).
