Location: California : Yosemite National Park : Tuolumne Meadows : DAFF Area : Daff Dome West Face : Crescent Arch (5.10a)

Comments: So...I've led Lucky Streaks on Fairview Dome and just led Crescent Arch on Daff Dome and I feel like the ratings should be switched. LS = 10c/d and CA = 10a, but when I did them (and by that I mean led every pitch) I felt LS was 10a and CA was 10c/d by comparison. Anyone else who has led every pitch on each route want to weigh in?

Comments: It is super neat, unfortunately this area has had some pretty good rainfall despite the drought (good for the earth bad for the route) I spoke with a climber who tried to follow this route and he pulled a block off at about 20ft off the deck and it cut his rope :( Please exercise extreme caution if you go and try this route!

Comments: When comparing this to Eric's Face 11b and Seminar Wall 11+ I am in awe of the difference between a letter grade and a + sign lol.

Comments: Led this on 10/19/13 and it is not "The Overlook" it is unnamed in the book and I want to call it "I Left My Beard in IC, Fubar!" This chossy little gem almost killed my belayer (Sorry Ross), but after getting to the "anchors" 2 pitons and a spinner we proceeded to clean the route on rappel. It needs more work, but it has potential!

Comments: You should take 22s82, it's paved and is the shortest approach.

Comments: haha yeah, there is no right or wrong, just different techniques :) face left = awesome OW moves. Face right and you've got some boulder stuff that will feel improbable, but it goes.

Comments: In my opinion, if you're tall enough to reach the bomber right crimp off of the deck this is 10d at best, you really just have to commit :/ my right digits were not happy about that decision lol.

Comments: Two years later I can confidently say that the finish is NOT the Fingertrip Slab! There is a slab between Fingertrip and Coffin Nail that is slightly more difficult than the end of Fingertrip 5.9 R ish and it is painted black.

Comments: I was here on Sat. 8-6-2012 and I'm sure I found this Buttress, but Janivore only had one bolt. Is someone rebolting or are they just hard to see?

Comments: The guide book seems to say that the trail is at the quarry off the road. This is not the case :/ follow the last directions on this page to get there.
