This line used to begin from the ground because the gully to the right was so overgrown with trees and tree falls that it was impassable. Now that the gully is cleaned out, it does make the wall look and climb so much better but fortunately or unfortunately, you can now walk up the gully and traverse left across a ledge to skip the first dicey section which definitely added some spice. If you start from the ground, stick clip the first bolt.

Start to the far right side of the cave and climb the delicate 25' face past two bolts to the base of the crack. Climb the crack using an assortment of gear including medium to large cams.


Vertical crack to the right of the DC Cave.


You'll need a well assorted rack including medium to large cams.

Does anyone know what the bolted route on the upper face out left goes at? Looks fun. Dec 17, 2017
