Diedre
May 24, 2019 · 1 pitch. Lead / Fell/Hung. Led the last pitch after coming up some hard shit below. Pussied out and hung at both cruxes. the top one was pretty wet. Great climb though and next time I can definitely get it!

Three Birches
May 23, 2019 · Follow. Really good climb. Just barely made it clean up the soaked first pitch with a backpack. Second pitch was awesome. I should think about leading it if it's dry, after Bombardment. Scary mantel on P2 can be avoided by going left I think.

Bombardment
May 23, 2019 · 1 pitch. Follow. Fun and very manageable. Make sure to get nice and high in the left crack before transitioning right. Looks like it protects well. Would be a good lead for next time! Feet or hands are always good.
