Fighting Fish
Apr 29, 2018 · Lead / Fell/Hung. This route is a lot of fun except for a cryptic (or 12+?) crux sequence above the second-to-last bolt, pulling into and through the roof. Maybe a hold broke? Or there is some secret sequence or hold that makes this 11-grade?

Spearhead
Apr 29, 2018 · Lead / Onsight. It would be interesting to extend this one back to the wall and then up the roof. I climbed above the anchors, stepped through the void, and climbed up several moves, but down-climbed because the roof is mega-dirty. Needs a lot of scrubbing.

Between the Sheets
Apr 29, 2018 · Lead / Fell/Hung. Crux (bulge 2/3 way up) is seriously hard for an “11”
Sport
5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c

Crap Attack
Apr 29, 2018 · Lead / Onsight. Fun eight. Extension goes 10+. A bit sandy bit straightforward with good holds and definitely worth doing.

Talent Show
Apr 21, 2018 · Lead / Onsight. Lead rope solo onsight. Nothing tricky (besides standard intimidation factor with limestone choss).
