Description Suggest change

D4 is a beautiful route on the right side of the Davis Face. Steep with clean lines and moderate climbing, D4 climbs mostly in the 5.9 range with a few bouldery 5.10 moves in a couple of different places. Unlike its sister climb, D3, D4 is bolted in a more traditional manner with bolts spaced about 10 - 15 feet apart.

Every pitch has a double bolt anchor with rap rings. Two 60m ropes are needed to rap the route.
Climbers on pitch 3.

Location Suggest change

This route starts just south of Harvey Carter. There is an obvious ramp that climbs up and right from the base. Walk up the ramp to start the climbing. To get off the route, rap at any of the belay stations.

Note: Many parties have mistaken the dark-colored bolts of the Unknown Route as the start of D4. D4 has silver bolts and is about 30m right of the Unknown route in what might be considered a very wide dihedral.

Protection Suggest change

A standard rack of quickdraws and anchor material for bolted anchors.
