Description 

DDD follows insipient cracks and small edges up the face to the left of Damnation Crack. There is pro but it can be thin and difficult to fish in while on the tiny edges. This route should only be attempted by those confident at the grade.

The route, originally put up on gear, was retro-bolted a few years ago but mercifully chopped to perserve the integrity the route and area which is historically a trad only area. Most climbers now climb the route as a TR accessible from any of the routes that top out on the Jello Tower.


Location 

The route goes up the vertical wall to the left of Damnation crack and the Jello Tower.


Protection 

Pro to #1 camalot with many micro nuts
