Rusty's Crack

Excalibur
Feb 14, 2020 · 4 pitches. Lead / Onsight. Followed P1 and led rest. Linked last three pitches, you can easily walk draws. Comfy belays and superb views. Rapped from top to short palm, then tried to rap to the next palm but came up 10ft short and had to down climb. Recommend not doing that. <=10a

Robotic Surgery
Jan 4, 2020 · Lead / Onsight. Make sure to go all the way to the top! Whoops, built an early anchor and had to walk off. Really fun, short, squirmy route.

High Strung
Jan 4, 2020 · Lead / Onsight. Hard start, but super fun! Placing gear on the first few moves was a bit tricky, but gets easier after the first horizontal band of inclusions in the rock. Lots of good places to catch your breath along the route.
