Climbing on "Ghost Dance". Photo by Blit...


This 5 bolt face climb is to the right of The DXM Cracks. More generic edge pulling.

5 draws, 2" piece, optional.

I definitely would not say that this climb is generic edge pulling. It is a nice combo of slab and face moves and encourages repeated "dancing" across the face to find the best holds and LOLR. It is a climb that will challenge both your route finding abilities and technique. The rock is a bit grainy and slightly chossy - not the bomber solid stuff you find a few yards left of the big cracks on DXM. The #2 camalot before bolt 1 isn't really necessary but not a bad idea since you'll probably have gear from doing DXM like I did.
