|E Crags (DBC Canyon)
This is a link up of the 3 main routes on Death by Chocolate buttress. Makes for a great day out with much more interesting climbing at a consistantly higher grade than DBC. Fairly well protected too.
Start up the big left facing corner of Endless Journey. Belay with cams half way up the corner or if confident, simul climb the last 80ft or so to the top of the corner. 5.7+ 300ft
Move up 20ft to a bolt, clip the locker and downclimb past the belay untill you can step right on to a face. Some cool moves takes you to the anchor of DBC. Belay your second over then pull your rope through the locker 5.7 80ft.
Do the crux pitch of DBC and rap/lower off into the corner of Day of Atonement. 5.8 50ft w/60ft lower.
Finish up DOA to the top. 5.8 6 more pitches.
See approach for DBC.
Starts up obvious left facing corner just to the right of DBC.
Rap DBC for descent.
