There are 2 routes to the left of Quickie on the Stream Wall that do not appear in my Mayr & Sweeney pocket guidebook. The first one, adjacent to Quickie, is very short with only 3 bolts. It seemed like it was about 5.5. The second was longer, having 8 (closely-spaced) bolts, and a helluva reach at the top to thread the rings. I would put it at a 5.6. Does anyone know the names of these routes, or whether they have established difficulty grades?

There are more than a dozen new routes at Willy, that are not in the guide. Most of them are in the more difficult to expert range with those two being easy routes. The routes your asking about, were put up by Kibum and his wife Lynne. He told me the names and grades, I just don't remember them now. Korean food names and the grades you thought, are about right. I did give the route info to Troy so they will be in the next updated guide, when ever that is. If it is important and you train at the wla gym, ask Kibum, he's there quite a bit, just ask around for him, he's known and quite friendly. If you pm me, I will give you his e-mail address
