Nice job Jeff! A big thanks to you and the rest of the developers for all the work at this crag. It's a nice addition to our playground.

this route is really good. a few pebbles breaking off, but will be very high quality when it cleans up. could also get harder as stuff breaks.

Lots of weird traversing but really nice movement with some interesting holds.

A top 10 slab route at the red. Incredibly varied. Thanks, Jeff.

This thing is a really tough on site for the grade. No on site for me, if you did I'm proud of you.
