Description

Home to the amazing Vapor Roof, Dayton pocket is famous for it's huge horizontal roof with sculpted pockets, pinches and flakes. For those interested in exploring or wanting to escape the crowds, this south-facing hill also hosts a high-quality boulder field with lots of potential for FA's.
