Description 

It is sad that it took more than a year after this fine line was established for me to jump on it. The FA team raved about incut flakes and high quality climbing; however, the convenience of doing other things on the crimpfest was enough to keep Hidden Treasure on the back burner. Well, I'll second the rave reviews, however belatedly. This has beautiful climbing on great features in a quite little nook. Perhaps we can call it adventure sport climbing. I'd go three stars for the stone, the flakes, the pro, and the spot. Bring the wine and a lady friend; never know what might develop.

Protection 

Take a dozen draws and double ropes. The double ropes are not needed for the route, but they will enable you to rap to the ground from the top of Dave's Dilemma.

This is a really nice climb and worth the trouble to access it. It is in the shade in the morning. It's pretty sustained and seems to have many bulges, increasing the pump factor. Even though it's one of the oldest routes at Devil's Head, it gets little traffic, so it's still full of lichen and doesn't yet have all the loose rock cleaned off. This would be a good spot for wine and the lady friend, as Richard suggests.
