BETA PHOTO: Dan's Delight 5.9, Training Pants 5.8, and Awful W...


Dan's Delight is the left-most crack climb on the Great Flake. Its mosly fists and fun... but way too short.


Shares top anchors with 'Training Pants' Takes cams up to 4 inches.

To reach the top anchors walk around either side to the back of the great flake and climb up.

A good fist crack for the first half, takes BD no. 3 cams nicely. The top is much wider but an very easy (5.4?). No rap rings but you can take the walk off from the back side without too much trouble.

If you're trad climbing bring a BD 5. Placed one BD 4 about 10 feet up and it was nearly fully expanded. Everything above that was wider so I downclimbed and committed to purchasing a BD 5.
