FA: Unknown

FA: Maurice Reed

30 foot boulder problem that 99% of people top rope. Rock horn at top of arete can easily be slung and equalized with a tree nearby.

FA: Dave Fortner

Toprope only!

FA: Shannon Stegg & Forrest Gardner

Stellar face climbing. Starts out very thin and delicate with great bolting, then ends in a long, slightly overhung face with big long moves between breaks. Very nice finish, beautiful rock.

Up the awkward, flaring chimney/crack and into a very nice section of hands/fingers. Balance your way around to the right.

Just left of Launchitude and right of My Dog Has Fleas. Big jugs and shelves are hard to miss. No anchor.

Route starts left of Sandrewf and works up the crack. No anchor.

FA: Shannon Stegg

Last route on the right of Holiday Block (parking lot side), just to the left of Cinco De Mayo (around the corner). There is enough space early on for a .1 and/or .2 cam to protect the crux under the roof. No anchors. Recommend building a top rope anchor off the massive horns at the top.

Start is the far left corner of Holiday Block, just left of Plush and around the corner from Sandrewf. There is a big boulder and tree just behind the climb.

Route starts just right of Never Believe and left of Fat Tuesday.

Starts just left of Tuesday's Gone/Pigs in Zen. Gear placement is sketchy, recommend top rope. There is one rusty bolt and then anchors, all need replacing.

Far left end of Holiday Block on the valley side (Pinnacle behind you) and just left of Oyster. No bolts, anchors.

FA: Johnny Arms

FA: Johnny Arms

Mixed route with one bolt and a crack that sucks up gear. Located on the slab across from Mudwall. Starts slightly left of the bolt on very thin slab, then follow up the crack. Finishes on anchors with quicklinks.
