David ascending his namesake.


Begin thirty feet right of the classic "Touch and Go" in a left facing / overhanging book. Powerful fingertips liebacking leads to a bolt. Above the bolt the crack widens to hand size in the back of a pod. Continue to the top in the hand crack above the pod. Sustained climbing down low! 2 out of 5 stars


Very thin to hand size cams and one bolt protect this gently overhanging seam / crack. Medium to large cams work well for an anchor. Walkoff towards Echo Rock.

Cool and easy to tr after Touch and Go. Would be a pretty intense lead even with the bolt.. Definitely worth doing
