Comments: I second the previous comment. It's got a lot of fun moves and that flake makes a beautiful *BONG* when knocked on. Good beginner lead.

Comments: Being that this is a new'ish' area there are still holds coming off the wall in places. This arete was mostly solid with an interesting/thin crux near the top.

Comments: I don't know which book Erik got his beta from (having read the route description on here I wish it'd been from MP) but losing the route on the 6th pitch, which took us 2 unplanned-for hours, sucked! We picked the route back up but the description Erik had printed out and carried in his pocket about the route was so bad that it was hard for us to recognize if we were on the right line or not. I think route-finding is pretty important when doing the entire DS climb. I'm not sure about where th... more >>
