Rhoads on lead.


This is the crack line to the right of Deustchlander. It starts out sort of slabby and then gets steeper and harder the higher you go. Some big moves at the end will keep your atttention until it is all said and done.


Though there are some decent looking placements on this thing I have seen dozens of good looking placements simply explode from the forces of body weight alone. The rock here is considerabley more delicate than at Necedah. I would suggest for leading any trad in the park, make sure you don't fall.

I just headpointed this route today. This is a really good pure line that sews up really well. The gear is absolutely bomber if placed properly. There's a bit of choss on this route, but for the most part the rock is good least were it needs to be. I agree with Nick, this is mos def the best route @ the Dodge!

Great to see some more people leading off the beaten path. Keep it up.

I can also attest to the "bomber if placed correctly" gear, as I took a couple of decent falls at the crux while working this with Josh a couple of weeks back.
