Tucker Tech on Butterflies are Free.


On the east arete of Copenhagen Wall follow 5 bolts up to bolt anchor. A sport climb - safe, brief, forgettable.


Best accessed from IRS wall near Tax Man.

I thought this one was fun, and gets points for solid rock. The first bolt seems in to be in a slightly contrived location, forcing the line a bit. Maybe 2 of 5 stars?

Almost like real climbing over a small headwall. Then it is over. First bolt is at your shins when you finally get to it. Odd. OK to do if you are rapping from the anchors above... if not, skip it.
