Description:

Technical and spicy face climbing down low followed by burly cracks and chimneys up higher, the DNB is a trad challenge. Start early and climb fast because after 17 pitches, the Kat Walk descent is less than obvious. Be prepared for sandbag ratings and beware of loose rock. Some folk say DNB stands for "Do Not Bother" but for others it a fine epic trad challenge. Closer to 10d consensus.
