Got this in good condition. Just one wet hold. The start is bold but I managed to get a wire in just before you pull left. The top wall is tricky to start.

Scary moves through the overlap though there is a reasonable and hidden wire just before the crux. Slightly bold 5c then hvs/ e1 to the finish. Went left at the ledge. weird fence belay.

Unconfident again. Found it spooky getting established over the roof, then found the upper flake really goey.

Start is intimidating and serious but not too hard. Lovely E1 through the meat of the route. There are two finishes at the top - I went for the direct finish right above the flake, which meant technical hard 5c moves on thin suspect holds and no more real gear after the ledge. E3 because of the end.

Really good. Scary start (crux). The rest is HVS, the top out is maybe 5b too...
