Description 

Dan's Line is another good moderate sport route on the Bihedral.

Start about 20' left of Hold The Line, at a nice sitting boulder by a small pine tree. Climb up and left on a ramp to a stance and clip the first bolt. Make some thin moves past the second bolt, continue up past an easy overhang, and climb up the slab, with some more thin moves, to a a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks at 100'.

Lower off this anchor (60m rope is OK), or continue 10' up to a higher anchor. Belay at the higher anchor if you want to do Puff Daddy (10a), which continues above.


Location 

About 20' left of Hold The Line, at a nice sitting boulder by a small pine tree.


Protection 

8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks at 100'. Lower off this anchor with a 60m rope.

Excellent route that felt like a true 5.8. Rarely do I lead a climb without first following someone else up the route. I know, I am a sissy. Anyhow, I led this one without any previous awareness. It was a blast. It held my attention but never scared me. Great route. I highly recommend it.

Be careful of the large flakes at the overlap. They are fractured and hollow sounding when you tap on them.

5.8? I don't think so. My friend followed this in sandals. I know that doesn't say much, but this was weak even for BoCan 5.8s. The Owl, Cozyhang, Cussin' Crack, etc are all more difficult imo.

Nice rock and reasonably sustained. We climbed the two neighboring routes and thought this one was the best.

Fun route that's more sustained than Group Therapy. Very well-bolted!

60 m rope just makes it from the anchors. Tie a knot in the end of the rope.
