Topo Cemetery Face

This is an appended topo of Cemetery Face with Justin's new routes.  The old ones are in black.
1  Delayed Gratification  5.10a
2  Grateful Dead  5.10b
3  Shallow Grave  5.8
4  Shrouded  5.7 (trad)

Justins (in blue from left to right) are
1  Acron  5.8
2  gR.I.P.ed  5.9+
3  Purgatory 5.10d
4  Cremation 5.11

The black double ended arrow signifies the access ramp which you scramble up to get to the top.  To the left of that there are 4 top bolts for TRing.  Those routes are just TR 1-4  which are ungraded but probably 5.10 and over.  They would have been great boulder problems except the landing.
Please come out and have a try on them.  Despite it being short, Cemetery face is fun climbing, awesome access and receives the evening sun.  I would love to get some feedback.

Access: Drive west
 on Portugal Cove Road past Windsor Lake. Enter Portugal Cove and pass Indian Meal Line and Bauline Line roads. Look for Anglican Cemetery Road on the right. There is a pink house on the corner.
Follow this road up a steep hill and stay left at the fork in the road. The road turns to dirt by the last house. Follow the dirt road for 100 – 150 meters. There is a pull out on the left side of the road directly across from the face.
There is a path directly across from the pull out that goes to the base.
