Dammit Samet is an awesome route right up the center of Devil's Gate. It is the line that makes you say to yourself, "I gotta rock climb that rock climb!" The route starts with a finger crack and has several cruxes mixed in with decent rests.

The Rakkup app lists it as 12d, my partner and I agreed on 12b. Get on it and decide for yourself!


It is in the center of the crag, you can't miss it!


13 bolts.



Best route at a very stacked crag. Brilliant climbing, perfect protection, and cool features. Sep 28, 2015
I didn't put this one up -- It's a Tod Anderson climb, and I really doubt 5.12b -- more like 12+, if this is the line up the twin cracks. Jun 9, 2016

Huh, there must be an error on the Rakkup app.... The route Slim and I are referencing is the route just right of the Succubus that starts in a seam. Difficulty seemed comparable to The Shaft. Jun 10, 2016

I'm pretty sure you guys are talking about the same line, just not agreeing on the grade.... Jun 10, 2016
I think we're talking about the same climb, Dave. Anyway, Tod bolted, cleaned, etc. I might have had the first RP, but Tod would know for sure. 12b...stout! I really do recall a hard 12+, but it was also in the full-on sun, so.... Jun 10, 2016

This is a great route but is suffering from a lot of flaky rock - many of which are crucial holds. This will obviously clean up with traffic, but the route may certainly get more difficult....

My first trip up the route I really didn't like it, and it felt really hard, but after sussing out the moves, I really enjoyed it my second time up. 12b seems fair once you've got the moves down, as there seemed to be some very hidden holds that made sequences way easier. Definitely not as straightforward (for me at least) as the 3 routes immediately to the right, which are essentially just great crimp ladders. Oct 24, 2016
