  • Colls Cove Access Update MORE INFO >>>
  • Areas on State Game Lands may face full hunting season closure starting in 2015 - please read and respond MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Start as low as you can on the rail feature under the roof, with a right heel on. Move into crux holds, fire a big shouldery move, try not to dab, then mantle onto face. No topout necessary, just be standing on your feet. Many variations exist on this boulder and will be described in better detail in the future.


    Around Slopey Seconds the Main trail will split, follow blue ribbons to the right. Continue for ~50 yards, passing White Lightning to your left. LTD will on your right.

    I would be interested in having the other variations to this problem described.

    So starting at the lowest left-facing questionable flake is called Big Dickens and that is V8, Like the Dickens starts with both hands and a right heel low on the rail feature. Then there is a lip traverse that sit starts on the left and tops out just right of the tree - that's called Dickens Suckin Lips V7. Now if you start all the way down at Big Dickens, get to the lip and traverse right to finish past the tree - that's called Big Long Dickens and it's a v9. All these confusing variations are detailed in the coming guide book. In the meantime if you want a tour of the area just let me know!
