Description 

This is the route immediately to the right of Diving for Rocks and is easily distinguished by wide-ish (fist), flaring crack. This crack is the crux of this route - always greasy, it's tough to get your mitts to stick in this thing.

The top rope above this route is 12a, Lonesome Dove.


Location 

To the right of Diving for Rocks.


Protection 

3 bolts + anchors

I don't know what the route out the roof is from the anchor, but Lonesome Dove is at the top of Diving for Rocks, at least according to Sean O'Grady's guidebook. Also, the anchors at the end of the roof are unlikely to be intended for toproping.

Thanks, Jeff - I haven't done that one and was just regurgitating what was in Jeff Jackson's original guide.

The Direct route is fun once you get your rope up.

Skip the crack, or waste all of your chalk. Lonesome Dove is connected to Diving, not this route.

Personally, I didn't think this route was much slimier than all the other humid rock I was climbing on today.

Don't know how you could say the crack wasn't incredibly slimy. There is a pretty solid hand jam near the top of the crack. Not using this would make the route way harder or you would have to go off route probably.
