Grinch rock has two routes with one star each that are worth doing (The Grinch's Grin 5.10d * and a 5.9*) and a 5.9+ route that should get one star. The rock is good brown varnish.

Rap for Grinch's Grin/Stolen X-mas could use another sling. Currently single "base sling" with doubled extender. Base sling is faded and abraded.
