Hand jams and finger layaways to the top


Located on the slightly overhanging east facing wall, left of Watermarks wall, avoid stemming to slab on right.


stoppers, cams to 3.5

This thing is 5.11b in the guidebook. Me thinks Bob is trying to sandbag us. Sep 11, 2009

I got on this today. I thought the jams were very solid, and fun, but the wall of Bifurcation is too close and as I was laybacking the upper portion of the crack, my back was hitting the wall. Would be cooler if it weren't so close to that wall! All in all, kind of contrived but I guess it's worth it if you want good jams... they are real good. May 15, 2011

This route is awesome! Best climb at this wall. And, probably one of the best-protected 11's at the Lake. I didn't feel like it was contrived at all (at least by DL standards). You just climb only using the crack and then the face, no need to backstep. Also, didn't have any laybacks like Andy (it's a crack, Andy, no laybacks). Feels similar to Sometime Direct, albeit shorter and burlier. Would be a DL classic if it were twice as long. Aug 7, 2011
