Note that Bangkok is a mixed route. There is a good med. cam placement in a horizontal between the 2nd and 3rd bolts.

Buckets for Bucky is an all trad route. It takes small to med. nuts and small TCUs well.

Syd Barrett's Corner is a mixed route with 3 bolts to the roof. The roof takes a mid. sized cam and the crack above takes mid to large nuts and mid. sized cams.

Astronomy and 911 are all bolt routes.

911 was not named for Sept. 11, 2001. But for the phone number you might need because of a funky pin placement on the original only partially bolted version of this line.

Syd Barrett's Corner is rated R in some guides. The original prebolted version of this route protected the face beneath the roof with an RP only. The R rating is no longer appropriate.
