Description

Long Dong's famous "deep water solo" route. Others probably could exist, but with the powerful riptides it's not really a good idea. This one is in a self-contained pool, with rocks around it that break the waves and ease the tide. There are a million variations depending on what kind of fun you like: you can traverse in from the left, you can start up directly, you can climb the easy dihedral to access the top and jump off, you can climb right across the face to the nose and up, or you can climb up the overhanging face on the right side of the nose. All stylish sends end after succumbing to the temptation.

Location

The pool on your left just as you come out of Puffer's Pass. If you're looking at the Clocktower, it's right behind you.

Climbing the face from the ledge is easiest, V0 for sure. Coming in direct from the water, up the overhanging face probably clocks in around V1 or V2. The monster jugs near the top allow for bathangs, flags, and other photogenic tomfoolery.
I was told by one of the older locals that you haven't climbed this line til you've done it shoeless and pantless. Watch out for barnacles and shells. Oct 29, 2013

I traversed in from the left on this, and the slippery traverse felt harder than the actual prow. Also, I think the sport grade of 5.8 might make more sense than v1/2. Regardless, this was probably the most memorable thing I climbed at LD. Jul 4, 2015
