Dr. Howard's Digital Exam
|339 page views|
This is another nice 5.10 addition to the Contest Wall from Doc Howard and friends. I'm guessing the chunky rock at the bottom kept would-be FAs away, but it's not so bad and grants access to some fine rock above.
Pull the crux moves through the chunky rock around the first two bolts before getting into some angling crack features and, eventually, some really cool pockets. Enjoy the sharp and featured climbing for a long distance to the rim of the mesa.
The bolts feel a bit more spaced out than surrounding routes but are tastefully placed. Well done.
This lies just left of Dough Boys starting off the wooden steps.
8 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with rings. Note the length--a 50m rope is probably fine, but watch the end closely.
