Don't Pout Climb Up and Out
|477 page views|
This can be climbed independently of Don't Pout 'Cause Yer Down 'n Out by staying left in the right-facing dihedral and continuing up the crack, but it is very tempting to stem to the right. Although the crack is perfect fingers, you don't really need it as jugs appear.
This is in between Lying on the Ground and Pigeon Pile Pinnacle with the same start as Don't Pout 'Cause Yer Down 'n Out but follows a great finger crack splitting the steep wall on the left at the top.
Standard rack, protect in the crack on the left at the bottom, in case the big flake comes off. You'll top out right at the anchors for D's Dry Dream.

Dave gets the good holds on top of the crux flake ...

Lookin' good up there, Roth!
How hard do you think it would be if you just used the finger crack (for hands AND gear?).
Also, do you think that bouldering more often would make for a stronger rope climber?
Just a thought.
