Description

Dan's Line is another good moderate sport route on the Bihedral.

Start about 20' left of Hold The Line, at a nice sitting boulder by a small pine tree. Climb up and left on a ramp to a stance and clip the first bolt. Make some thin moves past the second bolt, continue up past an easy overhang, and climb up the slab, with some more thin moves, to a a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks at 100'.

Lower off this anchor (60m rope is OK), or continue 10' up to a higher anchor. Belay at the higher anchor if you want to do Puff Daddy (10a), which continues above.

Location

About 20' left of Hold The Line, at a nice sitting boulder by a small pine tree.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks at 100'. Lower off this anchor with a 60m rope.

Someone snagged my two draws from the anchor. If you happen to see this, please contact me! Jul 31, 2017

I led this route this afternoon (4/25/2016).

Hardware all seemed fine with no issues.

60m rope was just barely long enough to lower the climber (or rap off).

Fun climb. Apr 25, 2016
Dale Haas and I went up on this route today to replace the broken Mussy Hooks. It turns out that only one of the original hooks had a broken gate. We replaced that hook. Thanks to Ron Olsen for supplying the replacement hook. Jun 23, 2015
Can't remember which route I saw this at, but I think it was this one. One of the anchors has a gate that is completely broken. Dec 23, 2014

60 m rope just makes it from the anchors. Tie a knot in the end of the rope.

Fun route that's more sustained than Group Therapy. Very well-bolted! Sep 5, 2010

Nice rock and reasonably sustained. We climbed the two neighboring routes and thought this one was the best. Mar 22, 2009

5.8? I don't think so. My friend followed this in sandals. I know that doesn't say much, but this was weak even for BoCan 5.8s. The Owl, Cozyhang, Cussin' Crack, etc are all more difficult imo. Feb 3, 2009

Be careful of the large flakes at the overlap. They are fractured and hollow sounding when you tap on them. Oct 2, 2007

Excellent route that felt like a true 5.8. Rarely do I lead a climb without first following someone else up the route. I know, I am a sissy. Anyhow, I led this one without any previous awareness. It was a blast. It held my attention but never scared me. Great route. I highly recommend it. Jul 15, 2007
