Description

The original free version of the Dunn-Westbay has been largely overshadowed by the Full Dunn-Westbay and The Honeymoon is Over. That said, when dry, it's an excellent route and a good introduction to 5.13 on The Diamond with great pro, a relatively short crux, and climbing that's a bit easier overall than The Honeymoon....

To the best of my knowledge, it's only been repeated by TC and Jason Haas. All three of us resorted to Mini-Traction rehearsal tactics, but a ground up, one day ascent would be an excellent and reasonable challenge.

There is a decent topo on the original Dunn-Westbay aid route page and a quality description in Rossiter's RMNP guide.

The video from the actual FFA with conditions that were a wee bit "damp." The last pitch is actually a very nice 12a when it's dry:
