Description 

The Off Duty area is on the right side of Duty Dome proper, above Fish Wall. The climbs here receive full sun and become scorching hot on a clear summer day. A 60m rope is a good idea, as most climbs at Off Duty require 100' rappels.

Getting There 

Hike the approach trail up the gully as if heading to Peek-a-boo tower. Around the elevation of Keen Acres on the right, a faint spur trail branches left to the base of Off Duty. This approach takes 20-30 minutes. It is also possible to scramble to the base of Off Duty from the gully separating Duty Dome and Fish Wall.

P1. Face climb between the blunt arete and a wide, highly vegetated crack to the left. After 45 feet, the difficulty increases as you gain an inside corner. Climb the dihedral to an impossibly smooth crux section. A nicely placed bolt makes this challenging move less desperate, followed by easier climbing to the anchor. (5.9, 100')P2. The second pitch flirts with exposure as you follow bolts up the edge of the arete to a diaganol crack that gains a vertical left facing corner.
