The first pitch of this route offers a welcome diversion while waiting for the other popular routes on Daff.

Scramble to the base via easy slabs and climb the right-facing dihedral on good, low angle rock. Near the top the angle steepens and the crack peters out just below where the dihedral turns into a roof and ends. Where the crack peters out, face climb route via good knobs. The anchor is seemingly just out of reach via good knobs and a few good moves must be made to clip the two bolt anchor.

70 meter ropes will stretch just past the slabs and get you to the ground.


On the right side of Daff Dome, just right of Crescent Arch is a right-facing dihedral that arcs up and right into a roof at the top. Scramble to the base via 3rd/4th class slabs at the base of the route.
