Manny leading Ding Dong Goes to USA.


Ding Dong Goes to USA is much more fun than the 2-star rating would suggest. The rock in the lower third of the route is hollow yet strong and the pitch is short but the climbing is memorable and challenging. Highly recommended if you've already done the more classic routes in the area.

3 meters of fun bush climbing to reach the base of a shallow corner that starts with fingers and tapers down to a less-than-tips crux at the top.


30m right of Clam Digger, Ding Dong Goes to USA is the shallow left-facing corner that thins to a very shallow, tips corner. A a small tree 2 meters up the route makes it hard to see.


Nothing bigger than a .4 camalot. Double zeros protect the crux. Medium and small nuts are great.
