Spooky Spike
Jul 14, 2019 · Lead / Onsight. Hesitated moving up into the seam above a tiny nut made 2 or 3 slab moves at the seam and then found secure awesome jams and corners with unlimited pro opportunities to the top.

Flower of High Rank
Jul 14, 2019 · Lead / Onsight. Led from up the gully to the shaded tree belay at the top. Loved dipping around the corner into the crack, and then found delicate moves to make the roof exit feel like a dance. Uber-classic!

Johnny Quest
Jul 14, 2019 · 1 pitch. Lead / Onsight. Started all the way at the bottom and led up to the chains. That (unfortunately) short 5.10 section is beautiful climbing!
