the top is scary but it gets easier- I rate it only 10c. We called it Ecstasy after the difficult arete in Pine Crk Canyon in the Eastern Sierra. Then the second time, my buddy Mike yelled "Take" when he was coming off. We all appreciated the ide of taking while DWS!!

If a DWS, higher than say 15ft, requires a dive off the top, does that instead make it a DWHD (deep water high dive) with a bouldery start ?

Full Value climbs on the right side of the arete, finishes up the face right of the arete, and is 11a at the hardest. Classic climb! Never dive at Clear Creek.

great dws until you reach the top the arrete you were just on is now in your fall zone tread wisely. I was recently informed that this route was a v2 if you exit off up and right of the arrete however I have been going up and left over the little roof and a R rated fall which bumps up the grade to about v4
