  The Book

Fat City: Moving up the .10a finger crack to the crux roof on the second pitch; the roof is climbed at the crack just above the helmet


Relaxing after climbing Fat City/Cheap Date; note the "Texas-sized" rack (Easterners!)


Fat City: Simon leading the first pitch (5.8); Will belaying

Cheap Date: Leading the awesome finger crack of Cheap Date; this route makes a great alternative finish to Fat City


Cheap Date: Bones rippling muscles on Cheap Date


Cheap Date: Jamming is the way forward


Fat City: Bones appearing from under the crux roof on Fat City

Inside Straight: Sequence of pictures showing climbing the flaring off-width


Inside Straight: Stuffing gear high into the off-width


Inside Straight: Laybacking the outer edge seems to be the way forward, although it's waaay pumpy


Inside Straight: Disappearing into the off-width; this is actually climbed on the outside, but it's hard to make the transition

Romulan Territory: Climbing the crux bulge on the second pitch; the difficulty of this pitch is in placing gear, as it's thin and technical
