BETA PHOTO: On the DL. With a quality pad in the fall zone.

Description 

SDS on the large horizontal crack. Move straight up using the face holds and pinches on the aretes.

Using only the face holds is a bit more stiff. Goes at about V4.

Location 

Hike South about 150 paces on the trail from Venus Rising/Bark Biter. There will be a faint path worn in on the right. Follow this for about 40ft toward the mini-talus field. "On the DL" will be on your right just before entering the talus.

Protection 

Pad is nice, spotter is nicer.

Sent the variation using only the face holds today. I'd say it clocks in around V4, though I'd like a second opinion.
SDS on same large horizontal crack and utilize the slopers and a couple nice crimps on the face to work the feet up before throwing for the top! Pinching the sides is off limits, boys and girls. Overall, pretty fun eliminate.
