The Engagement
Jun 27, 2015 · Aside from Cryo. This is one of the best lines on the lower wall. With the large tree gone the exposure is that much better! Kind of stiff for .12b More like .12+ and supper crimpy.

Grotto Wall Traverse
Jun 27, 2015 · I climb this route a bunch with clients, it is of high quality! I disagree with the other comments about the first pitch. It often looks wet, but the water is just right of the holds one uses. A couple chimney moves which you can face climb through. T

Cramper
Jun 27, 2015 · Good crack climbing, but not .10a more like .10c. Jamming skills needed.
