The Dead Goat Hole - a Pointless choss update

Pointless Crag is bustling with new life this spring! Several hundred feet left of the current zone are two new routes. Goat Meal (5.11?) is a six bolt overhanging jug haul to a powerful lip crux, and Stingray (5.10+?) offers up the longest line on a slightly overhung wall; ten bolts and a befuddling sting in the tail finish make for a good pump!

One more route is being worked out in the Dead Goat Hole sector just to the left of Goat Meal. This line climbs the steepest part of the overhanging scoop and will likely be the most difficult route at Pointless to date.

Here are a few images of Goat Meal:
