Description

Look at the steepest face in the Playground; there, just left of the obvious pillar that is The Rook. See that vague weakness right out the middle of the overhangs? That's Dharmakaya. Beautiful white rock down low, powerful moves through the upper section.

Location

Between the left-facing corner of Departure (look for the bolts at the top of this) and the Rook pillar.

Protection

Easy to TR (bolts at the top), but has been led without undue fuss (assumes you're up to the challenge - you're very unlikely to stop to get gear once the hard work begins. And the fall would be large.)

There is a fairly large flake at the bottom of the roof that felt loose today. I would not be surprised if it got pulled off one of these days... Jun 17, 2016
