Jill working the crux.


Great moves from the start that ease less than you might think in the middle. As a bonus the top has a thoughtful section as well. Don't let that wide crack scare you either.


This climb starts where the trail that follows the drainage turns to the right away from the cliff. Same start as Monster Buck but moves right from the dark bulge of rock that marks the start of these routes.

A good route with a great name! I found the first third of the climb to be continuous and tough; once you're done with that a good rest is available before the final push to the top.

This route is fantastic. Really interesting moves that keep you on your toes from the bottom to top.

tricky and thoughtful, and hard at times.

Great technical/tricky climb with fun footwork. Good mix of holds and technique and even an off-width butt-jam at the top if you want to use it (but the face is fine).
