Location Suggest change

Dihedral left of Daffy's Shaft. Its pretty obvious.

Description Suggest change

Perfect beginner trad lead. Plenty of gear and easy climbing. Climb a R-facing dihedral, slab, then move up and right over blocks. Edit 2021: Chains up top.

This climbs the dihedral left of Daffy's Shaft, traversing a bit right at the end to climb the roof through a weakness. The route is not difficult to climb or protect, with some slabby sections where the crack helps and other areas, that you really don't need the crack. The rock is rather good, and the climbing varied.

Protection Suggest change

Larger gear down low, thins out to small-medium gear up top.  A #1 Camalot protects the exit move very well. Two ropes for the rappel or 1 60-meter rope and some downclimbing. Standard rack- Nothing bigger than #2 camalot.
