Clark Kent 5.10b/c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b PG13  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Clark Kent Cliff
One of the best at Dexter. Rope drag precludes doing it in one long pitch. P1: Start with the crux off the ground in twin thin cracks. Follow easier crack climbing and belay under a large roof about 100 feet up.P2: Hand traverse to the right edge of the roof, then jam and stem up a very cool overhanging corner....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
