Just Another Trad Route
Go Easy
Goodstone - has one big fatty, somehow didn't pack a second bolt. Will get it done sometime.
Cruising Lane
Rite of Passage
Eye of the Needle
Manic Impression
Funkadelic
Appalachian Spring
Sepukka
There Goes the Neighborhood
Orange Juice
Red Hot Chile Peppers/Headstone Surfer
Hardcore Jollies
Up Swift Creek
Glory Be

Be mindful of the dead tree above Cruising Lane/Rite of Passage.

agreed..I can't tell you how many days Jeff, Teresa, and a few others (Matt Johns and Lee Smith come to mind) gave up to put the shine back on this crag. The entire community owes you big time Jeff! I tip my drill to you.

Thanks for the thanks.
I wasn't fishing for compliments when I posted this, just wanted a thread for updates as they happen and maybe solicite help like on Glory Be and Smokin Joe. I have what's needed to wrap them up, they are just unfinished biz that takes time away from getting another route done.

Funny, whenever we're working out there and see someone, they are always appreciative and offer to buy me a beer.
I hang out at the beer trailer all day on Sunday and no one ever shows?

Edited original post to add There Goes the Neighborhood and Orange Juice to the list.
Also got the stubborn first bolt off Smokin Joe.

when ever you think you "may" be giving to the climbing community, the RRGCC, or whatever, please think of guys like Jeff. The amount of work that he and Teresa have single handily done at FRC deserves more respect than most can imagine. I kid you not, they have easily put in 200 hours out there in the past year, giving up good climbing days, going out in temps like today, all so the next generation can have superb safety in this playground of ours. Please tip your hat to this dynamic duo....and instead of just the lip service of "thanks' please put in time at an extra trail day or fundraiser. There are those that complain, and there are those that "do"....Jeff is a well oiled machine. You have my respect dude.
Positive vibes brah...positive vibes.
