Tricky face climbing.


Climb a shallow dihedral and tight seam 5 ft left of Dead Tree climb. Angle left towards right side of large overhang past a small shrub on the wall.


TR, might make a good headpoint.

These was Originally called The Defeat of the DLFA Boys,
Swartling changed the name to be more PC, FA. Alex A, Pete C, AKA old school,

Nick it can be climbed both ways, but using the corner at one spot is Easier, the 1st time did not use the corner, 2nd time used corner, 5.12 vs 5.11, so yes the corner is in for the 5.11,

Ha! I will have to honor that name then. Agreed 5.12 w/o the corner.

Nick, I think you got the 2nd ascent, with out the corner, to my knowledge no one has done it, but us, that way, that's why it was rated 5.11 vs 5.12

Great little sloper (right hand- three finger pads only and sloping) at the crux of this route. I found a way to push upwards with the left arm (palm) so that it is easier to let go with the right and extend for the sloper. Tighten that right hand on the sloper, carefully bring the feet up and then match along side on the sloper with the left as well. Try and stay sticking to the sloper while you work the feet up again and can make desperate fire above to better holds. I can't remember wich hand your reach above with.... If I remember right the feet stay skimpy until well above..

First time for me at Dead Tree Wall today.
This route can now be properly called Defeat Of The Boys, after an ascent by Sandy Wagener.
Time for the boys to go back to school.

One move 11.c/d.
I got up it in CMC style with 20lbs of tension.
Sandy, in a typical display of native talent, actually climbed the route.
