    Uncertain Daze 25m 17trad
 Approx 100metres right of Peanuts is a small cairn at the base of a nice crack, which takes good wires to a horizontal break at 4m.
Dance between twin cracks to unlikely looking steep bulge, which is well protected (0.3+0.4 BD) and much easier than it looks on good holds. When on the Face above move left to large ledge with tree abseil. Rap approx 25m to ground from tree.

 A classic. Varied and enjoyable first pitch. The second pitch is a little more out there.

P1(37m, 18)Up white slab to crack/corner. Step left under roof then up and into the lovely corner above. Belay from chains (30m to ground from here).
P2(45m, 18)A bit wild. Up just right of the belay for about 6-7m ,traverse left (about 4m) and up corner, left again past arete and up face on left, all the way to top. Double ropes reccomended for this pitch. Could be best to belay about 15m below the top on big ledge to help with the drag. There is a triple bolt belay (rings). Descent is around 45m rap to the top of the 1st pitch (then another 30m to the ground).

 Fun steep sport
Starts 1m left of Thunderball at corner. (This is about 5-7m left of Falkenhorst, which has an unusual reverse "S" marked in the rock at waist height). There are some old bolts at chest height between these routes which was the old bivvy.
Delicately up corner, step right to good holds, up and back left past bolt at horizontal break (pretty thin!) and blast straight up for about 6-7m, then traverse diagonally up and left to hidden rap station above unusual arete feature with lots of tiny pockets, resembling a bee's honeycomb formation.

N/A :     Westward Expansion   -   verified     IMG 18m 17trad
 In the nineteenth century, the incessant westward expansion of the United States incrementally compelled large numbers of Native Americans to resettle further west, often by force, almost always reluctantly
Steeper and harder than it looks! Starts about 4-5m right of "Yatzi" (about 100m south of "Shaken, not stirred) below big roof, the attractive 18m high crack finishing at a steep roof with a very steep offwidth crack.
Straight up the crack, with a few steep bits. Better and steeper than it looks. Gear is OK but can be a little pumpy/tricky to place.

P2(25m, 16)Up and right along corner/seam to base of big corner. Directly up for about 8m, then right onto face and belay at (new) rap station. 60m rap to ground.
