WHEN DOVES CRY 5.10d ** (2 pitch) M
An adventure - big exposure, some questionable rock, but also great pro and climbing.
P1 – 5.10 * 85’ M (4b) Begin low on the right end of the big West face, climb diagonally left through the crumbling offwidth/corner/roof. Belay at mid-face at the 2 ring anchors.
P2 – 5.10d ** 70’ M (5b) - Climb directly up to the 2 bolt anchor/belay at the top of the arête. Sustained and interesting climbing needs a wide range of cams to protect.


In the middle of the largest west face of Big Butte (above the huge boulders)


Mixed - wide range of cams needed.
