Description

There is a sport route to the left and also right of allied forces. The one on the left has perma draws on it. What are these new climbs? They look way fun.

They're both in the book. The one to the left that intrudes on Allied Forces is Contempt of Court (12-something). I forget the one on the right. And they're not new - late 90's, I recall.
