Stemming high up on D.D.D., 5.11a


Easy but unprotected slab gains the first bolt about 25' up, after which two more bolts of face lead up and left (crux) into the dihedral which requires a deft blend of stemming and face climbing. The climbing eases near the top and concludes with a short section of perfect hands (2.5" piece optional).


This is the striking left-facing corner system in the middle of the wall between Anger Management on the left and Fall Harvest on the right.


9 bolts, chain anchor (optional 2.5" cam)

The corner looks easier than it really is. Getting established in the corner is definitely the crux, but its good all the way up.

IMHO the top anchors need to be lowered considerably. Well protected

We set up Top-Rope from the two-bolt top anchor. We reached that anchor by scrambing up around the Right (west) side of cliff. Glad we had approach shoes with sticky climbing rubber. The top area is fairly slopy, so be careful of slipping off (and careful not to dislodge loose rocks + dirt).

I found it pretty tricky to "get established" in the corner. But plenty of thoughtful strenuous moves above.
