Comments: FYI- there was a fairly severe injury on this route last weekend. During the descent over the crux headwall the repellee lost lateral stability swinging left off the corner. She hit the back of her head. Please take care especially with less experience climbers.

Comments: Jay has added some protection and cleaned this route up. It is much nicer but I think with one significantly harder move. From the top of the short open book you can clip a bolt (long reach failing to clip this makes the route R) Make a tenuous no hands traverse under the bolt felt high 9 or low 10 but I was following so if I fell I would have only completed the move. Up on easier ground past a couple of new bolts and take original route to top.

Comments: I chose to stay in the center at the bottom adequate protection, Fun with an easy improbable traverse above overhang.

Comments: On sunday, we were told by some previous climbers that the ranger had approached them telling them the route was closed because of proximity and that there had been a sign but it kept getting removed. I was surprised that there was no mention here.

Comments: Girth hitching the tree behind the climb is what I used. There is actually an old piton in the tree but is has been completely grown over.

Comments: The route is not even bold face in grey dick but I thought a much better way to the top of the formation than Dick's Prick (except for the short thrash around the tree).
