Soloing in the Dells
There are quite a few routes that are new in the Dells that are not yet covered in any guide. I have heard rumors of a new guide coming out soon which should cover the new climbs in the area. Until then, I want to know if anyone knows what the names and ratings of the 5 or 6 sport climbs in the narrow gully to the left of Fred on the main wall at High Rappel Dell. The climbs are located just below and right of Huckleberry Thin and Huckleberry Thinner. metcalfd

The routes you are talking about are on the Descent Gully Wall.

Order of routes from left to right:

Wugit (5.6) - Fixed Piton to top.
Last Word (5.10a) - 4 bolts to top
In the Dark (5.10c) - 5 bolts to top
The Empire Strikes Back (5.10a) - face past 2 bolts, up cracks to 3rd and left for 4th to top.
Ballie's Blind Spot (5.9) - Awkward mantle to 1st bolt, up right side to top bolt, keeping left of ramp. 4 bolts total to top.

Hope this helps!

Oh, and these routes aren't exactly new, just new-er.
