Hey Kenny,
What is the easy route in the middle called? It's around 5.9. You belay from the big ledge.

Hey, are the routes not listed toward the harder or easier end of the range? Wondering if there are enough 10 and under for the gf.

Headed out here for the first time on 10/09 - super warm and beautiful with some slightly chossy but very fun routes (those I climbed) but COVERED in gnarly, scary huge wasps buzzing around and hanging out in sidepulls and underclings (yikes).
I'm sure this is a rarity and only at this time of year - those buggers love warm rocks in the fall - but be advised.

Also, does anyone know what all those routes are on the rights side? - some had draws hanging and looked like pretty intense projects, while others looked somewhat moderate.

Yeah wasps were pretty gnarly - two routes to the right of the block down low had draws hanging on them so i figured it might have been someone's proj. They actually looked really nice, now that i know the grades are reasonable, i'll have to try them next time! Thanks.
