Looking up the Birdland route. It follows the obvious crack just right of center and then moves up the glorious face above just off to the right of center.
There was one other party on the route ahead of us so we started up what we thought was a route called “Psycho Date” but turned out to be not a route. But it was a fun face to climb anyway and we called it “Full Nest”, 5.6 but suspect rock. It's the face right of the first pitch of Birdland and starts behind the large boulder seen at the base of the wall in the left side of this photo.
Looking up the second pitch of Birdland. A climber from Phoenix, Lou, is on the pitch.
Allison following the second pitch.
More enjoyable varnished face climbing.
Lou's partner, Megan, following the third pitch.
Megan on lead of the fourth pitch.

Another Phoenix climber leading high on the neighboring route, Rawlpindi.

Climber on Rawlpindi.
Allison near the top of the fifth pitch. Beautiful face climbing with a great small fingers crack.
I photoshopped these ropes into the photo. See the next photo to see the original without ropes.
Cleaner, no-ropes version.
Cool light back at the base of the route.
To end the day we climbed this nice crack/roof route called Bush Pilot, 5.10a R, on Brass Wall Right. Super fun.
