Rad Kreme Proposal on the Slab

/
The proposed route is on the West Face of The Slab and takes an independent line between the routes Sooper Kreem 13a, on the left and Undertow 12b, on the right. It will take a line varying from between 10 and 30 feet from either route, never being possible to climb or clip bolts on the other two routes. I believe it will need 12 protection bolts and 2 anchor bolts.

The Handy Warm-up Proposal on the Hand

/
The proposed route is on the West Face of The Hand just left of the route New Saigon and will become the left most route on the wall. It has been red pointed on top rope at 5.10a and will make a nice warm up for the adjacent routes. It is approximately 45 feet long. The crux of the route starts off the ground and may require a stick clip due to the nature of the terrain.

Fat Elvis Proposal on Der Freischutz

/
The proposed new route goes straight up a beautiful face for 40 feet to a ledge, about 15 feet of easier climbing up the ledge lead to an overhang. Once over the overhang, a rising traverse left leads to a rounded arête to the top. There is no natural protection on the route except on the ledge. One gear placement in this section could protect the run-out from the bolts on the lower half until you clipped the first bolt on the top half.
