The name comes from the Graffiti Dove that is still visible on the face. Start standing on the right side of the the face with which ever holds feel good. Make your way up and left on the arete using slopers and anything else you can find. This problem is so much fun and is pretty technical. I recommend it from a sit at V4 but I think most everyone does it from the stand the first time around.

Hint: An inobvious sidepull pocket in the face is helpful for many, might want to look for it ahead of time.

When I was here a couple months ago there was broken rock all over the ground. Is the problem still intact?

The broken rock was from someone (not a climber) having a fire to the left of the problem. It did not affect Peace Dove at all.

According to my copy of some old notes of his, the FA was by Paul Baird, mid '70s.

Very cool, thanks for the info. Amazing line added a few pictures of the climb.

No way this is a V2. Desperate grab to painful slopers = classic V3.

Also, the sit start only adds a single (easy) move to the problem. I think either variation (sit or stand) is V3.

My two cents.

Some clarification on the grade from the old Andrew Wilder/LWB site:

"2. Peace Dove - V2 ***
Start standing on right side of peace dove face. Climb up and left following slopey holds on the arete. Tricky for the grade.
[The problem is V4 from the sit.]"
