Mid crux


At roof where Cookie Cutter moves left, go straight up middle of the headwall. Big moves get you over the two roofs with jugs waiting at the top.
Not listed in guidebook.
There was a large block in the middle of the wall, but it broke in my arms and now there are two small, but nice crimps.


Face just right of Cookie Cutter. TM overhang is on your right.


TR, could be done on lead, but would be desperate.

Bouldery moves in the upper half, a fun addition to DL.

By desperate do you mean big drops between small gear or "NO" gear?

Remo? You don't know your own strength it seems? Breaking large blocks via you grip into small crimps?

Only gear is at my feet in the main pic. Death fall to the slab after that. Must have it wired to lead!

Definite heads up lead, a fall at the crux might leave your partner carrying you down. Glad Matt didn't have to carry me down. I'm sure he is too. :)

I'll belay you Remo! There are a few more routes here I'd like to do. Your line is great, super fun moves over the roofs, nice eye finding this one. As others have mentioned, specifically for Cookie Cutter, the rock isn't the best but with more traffic it should clean up some.
