BETA PHOTO: Dunce Cap (5.7)


Slightly awkward climbing down low, crux is probably near the top, but depends on the climber. On the easy side of 5.7.


The tower about 10-15 feet into the canyon (left) from Garbageboy and Trash Disco, easily visible from both.

Thanks for the info. I don't know too much about the history or even the name of this route, so any information is definitely welcome.

Talked to James today; apparently the name of the route is, "Dunce Cap." And yes, James put this route up.
