Don't Call Me White
Oct 2, 2021 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Swung leads. Removed a big paper wasp nest on P1 near 3rd bolt. Route continues to clean up (safe from dangerous rocks) but still needs more cleaning (kitty litter/gravel & lichen). I'd say 5.9, 5.10c, 5.8+, 5.10d. Might consider an additional bolt between bolts 1&2 on P4. The 2nd pitch is fantastic, my favorite! Super cool, challenging route. Thanks for putting it up!

The Groove
Jun 20, 2021 · 1 pitch. Lead / Onsight. Cool route! Stemmed off the tree to make the first moves easy. Enjoyed the "bust-a-move, rest, repeat" nature of the climb. BD cams 0 - .75. DMM offset nuts were rad, used a ton of them.

Apr 30, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. Fun route. Rope drag problems & a pesky rope-catching crack at the top. Try to keep rope in the left notch to prevent your rope from getting stuck.
