Yosemite - Midsize Hard Free Climbs

Here are a few shorter routes that still boast at least 3 pitches of 5.11 or harder, but are under 9 pitches, so they miss the cut for the "Long, Hard and Free" page. Most of them are probably overlooked, so they might provide some interesting fun off the beaten track. This is not meant to imply that climbs under 5.11 or with less than 3 "hard" pitches are not interesting; it was just a way to reduce the number of routes in the list. See also long hard free climbs and long moderate free climbs.
