I have some feedback on the grades:
parental guidance isn't 11d, unless there is some very specific sequence you have to use. I angle up and left after the second bolt, then reach right to the jugs under the third bolt. Took me some time to figure this out, there is chalk on all kinds of not so useful holds. I think its a one-move 11c.
wet the bed would be the first 11d I ever flashed, but I don't think so, its easier than parental guidance, the crux is one 6 inch bump, I think its 11b, though harder if you are short (<5'8)
homeless: its one committing high step, I don't think its 11-, 10d?
beatifully breasted had two technical sequences that had us all hang-dogging in perplexity, even the two of us who onsighted wet the bed. So, maybe its just a matter of figuring out the moves, we'll see when I get a second try, but its way harder than homeless! 11b or 11c?. I think this was the best of the routes we did, interesting movement, consistent climbing. 3 or 4 stars.
Thanks for all the work you put in!
Oh.... and a suggestion for anybody doing the 5.4 and 5.5 at Playground with little kids (5-6 year olds), I suggest putting long, long slings on the anchors, so that they finish the route *before* the ledge at the end. The ledge makes a nice clipping and anchor cleaning location... but kids aren't going to do that. Its intimidating for everybody getting lowered back over a edge onto more vertical terrain, there is a change of direction as you step back off a ledge that can feel very exposed, and I've watched my kids and a bunch of others panicking at the lowering off, and needing someone to come up and give some hands-on support. YYMV, but I think if they lower from right below the ledge, they are on a consistently angled slab, and will find it much easier.
