Rat Stew
Aug 2, 2020 · TR. Another great 5.10 on the wall. Stays true to 10.a most of the time, Route is very comparable to the 10.c next to it with the crux being not quite as hard. Decently pumpy as there are some overhung sections. Way fun.

Critters on the Cliff
Aug 2, 2020 · Lead / Onsight. My favorite climb at the wall. Mostly pumped out 5.10a climbing with a hard dynamic crux about half way up. After the crux, great holds and super fun climbing to the top.

Return of Manimal
Aug 2, 2020 · Lead / Flash. Fantastic climbing on mostly great ledge/juggy holds. Crux in the middle is a little reachy, high feet is the key. Little pumpy but great climb.

Ohio Climbing
Aug 2, 2020 · TR. Super fun 5.8, one of the better easy routes that I’ve climbed. Perhaps a little technical for new climbers.

Slip on Slime
Jul 7, 2020 · Lead / Pinkpoint. Interesting climb with decent hands and mediocre feet, mostly smearing. Rock is slippery. Crux is the OW flake between 5-6. Run out enough to be decently stressful but not dangerous. Fantastic view of el cap. 5.10a/b for what I’m used to.

Mockery
Jul 7, 2020 · Lead / Onsight. Exquisite climb here. Fun movements, decent views/exposure, combination of cracks, flakes, and crimps. Solid holds all the way up and well protected. One of the better moderate sport routes I’ve climbed. Holds true to rating with maybe 1 or 2 5.9 moves.
