|Rope de Dope Block
The obvious crack up the middle of the block. Pretty big in places, lots of face holds, occasional (or consistent if you wish) jams.
Normal rack, bigger gear works well. Takes nuts well. Bolted anchor

Crack looks interesting when viewed from far away. Up close it's kinda crappy and very flared. Gear placements looked poor. Scoped it out, decided not to lead it, glad I didn't. I don't like cams in flares. Maybe small nuts would work. Ok climbing, felt secure but you climb on face and flakes more than in the crack. I would not climb this route again there are better sport routes on rope de dope and trad routes across the river.
