Description

This route goes through the overhanging headwall 1/2 way up the Dicker's Peck instead of traversing around it as for the standard Route. This seemed 5.9 at the time, but that is compensating up and down to account for the footwear and lack of footwork used... On lead, I campused the headwall completely, statically hanging to check each hold before hauling on it, as there was a runout and a ledge... Peter was able to haul up a foot (hiking boot) and place it high for leverage, so obviously this was not necessary. Still, the juggy nature of the route gives itself to such climbing and is more direct a route.

Location

Start as for the Standard Route.

Protection

A standard rack with a few pieces fiddleed in here and there- a little sparse for gear, but not too bad.
