DescriptionThis route involves a bouldery start through sloping edges that will bring the pump early. Stickclip highly recommended. After a series of spicy clipping stances you reach a ledge for a break. Notice the fossilized bamboo stick on the rock next to you! Take a break before climbing sustained slopy edges and pockets all the way to the top. Crux moves occur at bolt 5, and don't expect a break at the end!
The Dude Abides will surprise those dependent upon the 3rd edition RRG guidebook - the rating of 5.11a is usually discredited. To those who believe in the 5.11a rating, "obviously, you're not a golfer."
