Me doing the last move at the top of the arete, in...


Another bolted boulder problem. Climb steep cranks past two bolts. At the third, either make a move to the arete at right or use little crimps to move left to the top.


On the first face encountered on the approach (which is short an overhanging). Dimpsty is the right-hand route, just left of an arete.


3 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

Hey folks! Does anyone have insight about the naming of this route and its spelling as "Dimpsty" Dumpster? Is it a play on the route developers name aligned with the brand of dumpster called the "Demster Dumpster"? Or is it referring to a past Florida state legislature political slogan that said "I am a Dempsey Dumpster" on pens and stickers?

Just curious about the history and spelling on this wonderful Dump route, and thanks for any insight!

Anchors are past the ledge at the top; if setting up a TR be sure to bring webbing or cordalette to extend, as QDs won't be long enough.
