The Recliner 19
Easy start to high first bolt, then directly up to second bolt. Either finsh out left on slopey foothold or hand traverse/heelhook right and mantle (harder). Two bolts. Could use another bolt at the top. Single ring bolt anchor above finish.
Simon Courtois, 2001
Easy Rider 18
A short line with three bolts to a single bolt/ring anchor. (Alternatively you can pull over the top to a double bolt belay at the block above Lazy Boy). Climb up juggy black wall to the 1st bolt. Move past the grassy ledge on the right (second bolt) then up to third bolt. After clipping bolt move up and left to "a seat" on the block left of bolt. Feels like you are riding a "chopper". Luckily good holds over the lip above. Simon Courtois, 2001.
Softer Cushions 22
Boulder up left of the fixed piton, then surmount the remainder of the overhang with quiet confidence. (Don't fall). Clip second bolt of Easy Rider, then plant two size 2 cams and some big wires in the steep arching crack leading to a spectacular finish. Shares Lazy Boy anchors. Simon Courtois, 2002.
Lazy Boy 18
Line with three bolts on right side of face. Up steep start past high first bolt to grassy ledge. Move easily to upper face, then steep finish past the third bolt (easier to the right). Two bolt anchor on a block a few metres back. Simon Courtois, 2001.
