Great roof crack, upper part is pretty pumpy. Beware of loose rock. Esp. if there are people climbing clypso II. Wes

This thing sucks cams in and swallows them whole. Make sure you belay your second from the top. Amazing route though!

You almost got a booty call. Fished my number 1 outta there after 30 minutes of finagling.

Sling out your gear for sure. TRing from the anchors is the best. Also, burly as all hell.

This is a pretty physical route. I had a fun time climbing THE THUNDER CHICKEN.

Nice number 2 currently stuck on this. Should be fairly easy to get out. Bring your cleaning gear

Leave the #2 stuck, it helps keep the rope from sucking your cams back in. Great climb.
