Stand start on arete. Move straight up with some balancy moves for a committing top.

Stand start on the far right hand arete using hold around corner and hold in seam. Move left along seam and then up at first vertical break.

Slightly contrived but fun. Start as for TTGCW, except head straight up to finish mantling lip before the 1st obvious vertical break.

Start as for TTGCW but continue left along the rail to finish up the left hand arete. Mega classic on good rock!

Stand-start on breast like feature, head straight up.

Start matched on obvious rail, head straight right then up.

Roof off width, prepare to be sick. Sit start at the back of the little cave.

Campus start up the rib and mantle out

Stand start at the pancake flake crimp edge and out as for president of funk. Adding this because I tore my meniscus battling for an onsight of PoF, only to find it was a sit start.

Follow the LHS crack to the inner corner of the roof, jam or crimp your way out and mantle out left.
