Description

One of the few moderates in the gorge, Digital Delight is a fun challenge for the leader breaking into the 5.8 grade. Most climbers skip the dirty first pitch, instead opting to take the trail switchback to the big ledge at the top of P1 and start on the second pitch. This is one of a few climbs that tops out on the lip of the gorge.

P1 - climb a vegetated corner that angles up and right to a tree ledge (actually a continuation of the base trail). 60'
P2 - work your way up a chimney, passing a tree, to a sizeable ledge; move left to belay. 80'
P3 - stem and crack climb up a nice orange corner, leading to another ledge. Avoid knocking off loose rock as you move left to a slung tree and belay. 50'
P4 - traverse slightly left from the belay, then move up a right-facing corner, trending right under roofs, and continue to the top of the gorge. 110'

Location

Starts down the trail from Primitive Paradox, about 50' right of Highly Wired. Double-rope rap from a stout cable on a tree at the topout.

Protection

Standard rack; small to medium gear. No bolted belays/anchors.
