^^^^^^^^^^

Bulgarian 5.11c looks kind of bogus...try climbing it left side in instead of right side in...rating should go down to 5.6









...this squeeze chimney might be 5.10 sumthin

Just a random granite pinnacle on the way to Gold Cross Peak, NV. Unfortunately, the highpoint of the peak is just a rounded lump.
