FA - David Wood, Dennis Erik Strom, 11/94
175a2. Aqua Cruda 5.10d 5x, thin corner system (gear), left side
of a bulge, to a short headwall/streak. (just left of Edge of Sundown)

175b. The Edge of Sundown 5.9+ R * 8x, 140', L/S rib on Knuckle Ridge,
runout up headwall to last bolt

175d. The Agony of Defeat 5.10a 3rd Knuckle, a bit loose between 4th & 5th
bolts. Knobs below first bolt are loose -- don't pull out on them.
On the first ascent, a knob blew while Dennis was bouldering out the moves
to the first bolt, and he took a cartwheeling tumble down the slope, like
the infamous Yugoslavian ski jumper on ABC's Wide World of Sports!
FA - Dennis Erik Strom, David Wood, 1/94
Note: these routes are often closed during bird nesting season, so
the best time to climb them is October-December.
