Terrapin Station
May 16, 2021 · TR. Felt good all the way to the rest above the piton scars. Struggled a bit to find the feet after, but managed the last bit without a fall. Need to refine the beta for the top. Everything below that feels very secure and completely reasonable. Last few feet above the rest is my crux. Did it twice yesterday, but Struggled more 2nd time in same section as 1st and lost my holds and weighted rope slightly before I caught myself.

Bulge
May 10, 2021 · Send. Felt v5 -- alot less work for me than the other v5's I've pulled. Tricky to sit start without catching heels on ground and still be able to pull up on the start holds, but I figured out the foot and body positioning without too much effort and got it clean...no heel drag at all. That's the crux. From there it's just whether you're strong enough for the crimps and finger buckets.

Fern Crack
May 2, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. Got worked a bit at the bulge, found it difficult to jam and move up since you have you reach into the middle flake so far to set hands. Stepped right onto the slab ramp/bulge and pulled through. Thought gear was decent although it is probably best to avoid cams in the flake. Equalized pieces on each side to lend structural support to flake prob best bet if you absolutely must. Some loose rocks at top, but easy to avoid and otherwise everything looked stable. I enjoyed the pitch.
