Comments: Hike down The Torture Chamber to a chain-link fence. Turn to your left (North) and cross the dirt road at the curve, aiming for the power line pole. The Dungeon is in the trees, under the pole.

Comments: If I was planning on leading it, I'd want a bouldering pad available. I'd say a hold broke off somewhere about 8 feet up in the giant hole. No real pro for maybe 10-12 feet, and a sketchy start make it a difficult lead. The rest of the route is much easier.

Comments: It seemed like there is some groundfall potential when clipping the third bolt on insecure moves. The overhang is way fun to pull. It's probably safer to TR this route.

Comments: +1 that 2 ropes are not necessary as AC said. The obvious gully to the climber's right is an easy downclimb.

Comments: I used a Yellow TCU and a .5 C4 for the first 30ish feet. Halfway up there's a place where a Blue TCU will protect, and I use that word loosely, a run out section just above the big ledge, and before pulling over the bulge.

Comments: Each pitch is relatively short. The first was 40m and the second 30m and the third maybe 35m. Solid bolt anchors that look new. Pitch 3 is reminiscent of the Flatirons. Very solid belay at the top of P3. Look for the ramp that moves up and right from the east side of the face for the start. Start at what looks like a ledge from the ground but is really a sloping feature.
