Start at the bottom of "The Dagger" arch feature. With your left on the left and your right on the right side of the belly, begin to move right pulling hard and making a toss to a good jug. Next follow the crack/seam on the West side of "The Dagger" formation until you are lead to the overhanging nose. From here, you must (CRUX) slap your way on both sides of the nose until your feet are safely on the nose jugs. The hard bit is over but a two move technical section to make a safe exit is to follow!!! Great line but bring a lot of pads and a few spotters.

TIP: If you get freaked out at the top (CRUX) sloper section you can simply step backward onto a tree and down climb to safety. A fall from the upper crux could be very dangerous!!!!


The problem is located in the upper slope or (WEST SIDE) slopes of "The Elicit Area." The problem starts the same as "The Dagger" but tucks under the belly/arch and climbs the over hanging (WEST) face via a crack/seam and steep nose section.

Take the (EAST) side Sisters Trail just passed where you would head up to "The Energy Wall." Follow the next gully/hill-side (WEST) until "The Dagger" problem is found.


Lots of pads and a few spotters. A fall from the upper crux could be very serious!!!!

That's a bizzare looking rock towards the bottom ... and based on your photos there's no way it's only 20 feet tall. Jan 7, 2010

The climbing on this problem is quite unique and fun as well as a bit scary at the finish.... that's the crux!!! The height of the problem is just an approximation, but I still feel the problem is not much taller than 20 feet. Go check it out for yourself... it's a great line.... Jan 8, 2010
