BETA PHOTO: South Face of Dutzi Rock


This route climbs the obvious right leaning ramp/dihedral on the south side of Dutzi Rock. Good rock and nice line make this a fun climb. The pro is sparse however, making it a bit sporty of a lead if 5.6/7 is near your limit.


Thin to 2 inches.

If you have the right pieces, it protects well-enough. Two critical pieces, if I remember correctly, were a Green Alien, for a thin corner crack, and a Blue #3 Camelot for a key pod.
