Description Suggest change

Do a few moves on an easy ground and mantel on a big ledge (no hands rest). Climb a cool yellowish face with some great moves, clip a 1st fixed draw and step left onto a small stance under a roof. The apparent “death block” that is on your left was crowbarred, hammered, and molested in any way possible by route builders and pronounced solid. Step on it.  Clip a second fixed draw (you may want to extend it) and pull a technical and powerful roof to the thin face moves. Climb the face and if you are still hanging there clip the belay station:)! Named after David “Rad Dave” Bassett who spent days and days excavating this wall.

Location Suggest change

Back of the canyon, left wall just before the via ferret steps. Start just left of a pile of yellowish rocks that were one day hanging on the wall. One can only admire the amount of work that was put into these climbs by the route builders.
