Description

first pitch 5.10+, second pitch 5.11. Two ropes for rappels. Same start as DZ Arête, then follow bolts leading right along a very polished dike to the first pitch belay of Puff Aider. The second pitch continues along the dike (two bolts) to a thin crack which becomes a triple crack, then over a roof, past a dead tree to another small live tree. The final moves are very thin and are the cruxes ending with a very difficult mantle to the belay. Try to stand before grabbing the belay; it is more difficult that way.

Location

The route shares the same start as the DZ Arete. Start up on the small ledge with the shrub.

Protection

Lots of draws, small stoppers, and cams from ¼” to 2”. Two ropes to rappel.
