Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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

Protection [Suggest Change]

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