Some interesting sequences on this one. Warning Beta Hint: Use the crimps, slopers or sidpeulls that you have and really punch the smearing and laybacking. Don't look around for better holds tha

X Marks the Spot-5.10+. Great climb with some amazing exposure and great moves. A fall higher up on the face though could definitely be an ankle-breaker (at least)on the ledge gained earlier in the cl

Middle-Aged Mutant Ninja Climber---Fun little climb. Maybe just a bit soft for a Rushmore 5.9, but the climbing is fun and sustained in the 5.8-5.9 range. Pulling the bulge is a blast as the sequence

Pre-marital Sex 5.8. Ok route, nothing terribly fun or special. The unpleasant squeeze corridor that you have to navigate to get to this this one doesn't help matters.
