Comments: Cool. I do that for Perfect Medium. Been trying that one more or less annually for 10 years, every time I'm in that area. If I ever hit the hold I'll be so surprised I'll probably fall off.

Comments: Yah Jon these are gone. I scrub them off but I'm sure I miss one here or there. I assume others scrub them too -- in 10 years climbing here I've never once been on a climb and seen leftover tick marks.

Comments: What a little gem!! Got the onsight on this one, reasonable protection but as stated above, the last gear you probably want in the top section is pumpy and balancy to place.

Comments: Cool route. PG13 if the shallow #0 C3 holds a fall at the crux -- would it? This wall is really nice and secluded. Approach is kind of a bitch though...

Comments: Nice little bluff and nice climb. Unusual for DL in that the crux is at the top. I took a couple whippers onto small nuts before finally sacking up and not botching the finishing sequence on lead.

Comments: Jim thanks for the info, we tried the route on the left arete a couple years ago and found it to be quite enjoyable, in the 10+/11- range.

Comments: One of these esoteric threads on here said it's not unusual to generate 5kn in a 10 foot fall. Less talk more climbing. It's as safe as most DL leads. Bring a pad if you're inclined.

Comments: Agree JJ this is an excellent climb and more people should check it out. It wasn't on my radar until I saw the photo of Kris G. on it in Jay's new guidebook. Regarding PG13, the gear is spaced out and thin, but a fall would most likely not result in serious injury -- isn't this the definition of PG13? Our crux piece was a #4 BD microstopper rated to 6kn (a bit marginal?). PG13? G? R? YMMV, but I'd agree with Rhoads and say PG13.

Comments: Either finish seems legit. I haven't finished over to the right but to me it seemed like it would be harder that way.

Comments: I used to think staying left of the bolts at the crux bulge overhang was harder than staying right, but I think they are about the same now. Maybe holds have broken over the past few years?

Comments: You can easily see Chilldo from the trail. Did you see that one? Go to Chilldo and look back towards the trail and a touch south. Viola. I don't have the new guidebook in my hands but I assume the maps are good for the area.

Comments: Peter's book has this as V1 starting on a jug to the left. We didn't have the book with us and sat started on the face and one hand on the blocky feature, and it felt more like a 3, so I put 2 on here. Pretty fun & aesthetic problem no matter your start beta.
