Description:

AWD snakes it's way through three seperate dihedrals on the Mountaineers Dome. The first has some thin liebacking, the second is bomber hands, and the third involves face climbing above a bolt. All this, great belay ledges, and a two minute approach!

3 out of 5 stars burly 2nd and 3rd pitch

embarrassing, but resorted to slithering my entire body on the left side of the crack on the 2nd pitch since I couldn't reach the finger hold above. start of the third pitch I had to face climb on the left before reaching the orange hold. lead went right (the correct way) and utilized the right foot hold and had the height to reach the "orange" knobby hold. stout climb, but had some decent crack.

Done this a couple of times over the years. Stout, and lots of quality climbing.
