Start 15' left of 'Stone Master'. Jam a right trending crack (5.8) to a ramp. Pass a few bolts into a steep, left-facing corner. Stem the corner past a fixed pin, and crank thru a short bulge (5.9+). After a few more face moves, jam a wide crack (3") to 'Stone Master' anchor. Rappel, or continue second pitch of 'Stone Master'. *Dew Mound is an alpine area with loads of loose rock. It is suggested to wear a helmet, and be aware of other climbers above and below you at all times.

Descent Options:

Rappel with 1 60 meter rope.

4 out of 5 stars One of the best 5.9's in South Central!

This climb is extremely varied with crack and face climbing, along with some stemming.
