I think DoD is 5.10 and typical example of the sandbag ratings that have been perpetuated for many of the older "moderate" routes around Durango. I think that most of the Durango .10s and .11s that I've been able to do aren't sandbags and are generally rated consistently with climbs in other areas.
About ten years ago, neither Clark Corey, who is relatively tall, nor I could get off the ground on DoD. At the time, Clark was cruising many of the .10s at East A and Cascade.
I have since rigged a toprope from the Yellow Pages anchor, using directionals and an old rope that I didn't mind shredding. I found that DoD's undercut start was 5.10, although I am barely 5'8".
