This is Dixon Lake's premier route. This outstanding face climb goes up the right edge of the noth facing main face. A few moves into the climb comes a nice barn-door move 11a, leading to a crux highstep/lieback kinda move 11b/c near the top. Scramble up the rock on the left handside and access the top for set up. Highly Recomended


TR bolts (three separate anchors on top serve different routes)

I would agree that this MIGHT be the piece route at the lake. It took me a while to put it together. Felt great to send....

I worked on this last weekend. Note: do not try upper crux in the sun. Much harder when you're roasting and your rubber is turning to liquid.
