CS Special and RML  Sucess!

CS Special's (as is often the case) crux (5.10b) is off the deck. It eases up the higher you get. Actually nothing special about it. RML (5.9) is worthy of the two stars that Miramontes gives it in his guide. A small to medium piece protects the start, a reachy jug that starts a handrail left, then throw your right leg up for an unusual off balance move at this grade. Slab climbing through bolts to the top from there (fixed anchor).

Out on a Limb and Sitting Here in Limbo  Sucess!

Fully bolted route, I use two 240cm slings to sling a huge boulder on top to set up top rope for others. Out on a Limb's crux (5.10b) is off the deck, typical of many Jtree routes. Kind of a convoluted line moving around Nothing spectacular or must do about it. Sitting Here in Limbo (5.9) has a cool start worthy of its two stars in Miramontes' book. A small juggy roof pull, I actually heel hook it for fun as well as practicality.
