Description 

In most guidebooks this is listed as a 5.2. That is a fairly rediculous grade to apply to this route. It is slightly harder.

DAB stands for "Dicey at Best" which is the route that begins off the ledge that this route ends on. You can scramble up on the ledge to the right and begin that route, or set up a top rope on this route.

And you can top rope this route. You can build a gear anchor out of horizontals on the wall above the ledge.

This is a chimney/offwidth. It takes a bit out of you physically, but it's fun a good route to practice your wide crack technique on.


Location 

From Lost Dart walk along the wall to the right. Look for a very distinct, yellow dihedral with a clean crack that ends under a huge roof. There is a ledge below it with a wide dihedral at the left edge. This is DAB Chimney.


Protection 

Big stuuf, huge cams and/or big-bros. There are no fixed anchors.
