Painted Desert (26) ****

Climb the aesthetic line between Time Stone and Woodro. Start up a small recess and step right. Use small layback edges to reach a thin rail where you move about 1m right and climb straight up where the orange rock on the left meets the grey rock on the right. A tiny cam (black alien or equivalent) is useful to protect the lower crux, while a large wingspan is handy - for the top crux in particular.

The Amber Phantom (24) ***

Climb the face between The Edge of Time and Serenity, Tranquility, Peace. Start up the first few moves on the arete, but then move right and up into a dark brown recess. Climb straight up the blank face above on edges to a good hand rail, where you move slightly right. Pull up to the next rail and then straight up to the top.
