Crack face 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  IA : Dubuque : Cattesse Hollow
Dubuque routes submitted are star rated in relation to each other.This over-hanging crack route seemed like it had seen previous action, perhaps even chalk remnants.It is a short route but overhung and doesn't give up until overcoming the top roof. Crux would be the top roof. Good quality limestone minus the hanging chunk in the middle of the crack. Be wary of this chunk, bits and pieces pull off easily but on the whole it feels sound....[more]   Browse More Classics in IA
