Slipped and injured a finger... Good job it's the last day! Bit of a nightmare getting to the top one handed.

Great route, varied and fun. Midway crux can be done without the tempting pocket which isn't a great handhold...

really cool but kind of close to the 6a and 6b+ routes next door -- spent some time wandering between them.

Sweet moves on good holds, wandered a bit (maybe onto the route next to it), but there so close together I think you have to.
