This Sunday I finally got back to finishing the finger crack Steady Yeti 11b. It is located at the NE Crags, just left of the Bigfoot Arete . After about a year I broke out my new rope and Amy Colburn belayed me up it and seconded. Thanks for those politely leaving it for me to finish. It is now open for business and I recommend it. It is about 90 feet tall and after an initially crumbly start (stick clip the lone bolt) the rock firms right up and offers lots of good jamming with great gear. There is a crux section about 2/3s of the way up where the crack arches right that will require some good footwork. The route shares the bolted anchor of Bigfoot. 11b is a guess. Some have suggested c, but it feels easier than that knowing the route. It awaits a consensus on-sight grade

Also, a couple of weekends ago, at the Beanstalk Wall, part of the NE crags, I, Tom Bowker and Jay Lena finished a nice layback corner up to a hand crack, with a tricky crux section past a roof connecting them. It goes at about 5.9. For lack of another name, I am calling it the Wiessner Corner. The initial corner is probably about 5.7. Amy Coulburn is cleaning a crack to the right of it. The link up of the corner to the top of her route will probably result in a great 5.8, just what the wall needs.

the start of the route before it was fully cleaned.

We hope to pay Humprey's a visit before the cold and/or short days close out this climbing season.
What are people's top 5 to 7 recommended climbs (in 5.8 to 5.11 range) at Humphrey's .  Trad, mixed, sport, all OK.
Multi-pitch routes are also welcomed.
What about it, Admin Al?  Grammy?  Others?
Thanks for all the help/advice you can offer.

Edit: No PG13 or r/R rated routes, please.  Not for a 1st timer to Humphrey's! :)

I don't know if walking is the right word  I kinda move foward with crutches.  I was up 4 hrs post op.

The biggest pain is literally like a killer shin splint ,, made worse by the years of compromised  muscle function.
