#9 is Rhumba of the Toads, FA in the late 90's, it is hardish 11.
I did not bolt the top, as it its easy, bring a nut to get you safely to the anchor, unless someone has bolted the top since I last saw it.

Tom Ellis, Luke Laser and I bolted Number 4. Tom and I bolted numbers 7 an 8. All sometime in late 90's. I can't remember if we named the three routes or not. Not sure who is responsible for the glue on the projects to right of Ride the Lightening as I quit climbing for a period of time shortly after bolting the routes. We also bolted the extension to Ride the Lightening and I think Tim possibly went back and added beefy anchors to the top of it.

There is an additional route on the extreme left of the crag. It has three shiny bolts and a run to the anchor (unfinished?). The holds look small and the climbing difficult.

I am pretty sure That far left route was bolted by bob Broilo about a year and a half ago(?). I think he tentatively called it "tiny dancer" and clocked in at 10c/d. Bob can probably confirm/deny this.

If the anchor needs chains let me know. I think the NMT climbing club has a set we could throw on there.
