1. Crescent 5.7
This nice 5.7 starts at the obvious right facing flake and crack start (defines boundary between two walls) then trends up and left and finishes on slabs above and out of sight. There is a bolted direct finish to this climb as well called Doh! (think Homer Simpson).
FA: Joe and Judy Perez

Variation 1a: Direct Finish 5.11a
FA: Jon Sykes &

2. Caveat Emptor 5.9 75’ (Name added 6-6-16 by R.Hall from note from Jon Sykes)
Climb the center bolted face to two bolt belay.

VARIATION 2a: DIRECT FINISH 5.11b 50’
Five bolts to the top.
FA: Jon Sykes & Mike Lee
FFA: Chris Marks & Jon Sykes Spring 2010

3. Touch of Grey 5.9 110’ (Name added 6-6-16 by R.Hall from note from Jon Sykes)
Slab/face with series of bolts leading to 15 foot crack leading to a white prow. Crack converts to a left facing corner that defines the left side of the prow.

4. Ben Zen Send 5.8 100’
Start at left facing flake that leads to a left ascending diagonal crack. Traverse 10’ on this crack and climb face above that links three intermittent crescent cracks to the top. Can seep after rainy days.
FA: Ben Mirkin & Jon Sykes Spring 2009

5. Moose Spirit 5.10- 120’
Right facing flake (to right of Ben Zen Send). Climb flake through overlap to bolt. Climb straight up to 25’ exit crack.
History: Jon Sykes put in the bolts believing that he was doing the original ascent. Ben Savage and Bill Kieler claimed an earlier ascent.
ACB: Ben Savage & Bill Kieler
