1. 5.7 The bolts have been chopped, but this route easily protects with gear. The slug shrub at the top of the route seems somewhat suspect. You can traverse 5 m to the right to gain another set of anchors at the top of #11.
2. 5.8
3. 5.8 A beautiful crack protects easily with #.5-3 Camalots
7. 5.9 (bolts on the upper wall are chopped, route stops just above the horizontal crack)
8. 5.10b (with a frustrating anchor clip if you are not 6'3")
11. 5.10b A nice slab climb! Bolts can be just out of reach. Be careful toproping a swing around the arete can cut a rope.
