The classic crack on the west side (makes sense huh? )
of DAFF. start on a thin lieback, with a 5.9 face move. Take a nice handcrack to a roof (first pitch), go thru the roof into an OW section (5.8 or so), and on up to the top. *note* pitch 2 is listed as "wide", but do not fear! This requires ZERO offwidth climbing! You will find a sea of knobs next to the wide crack. Easy face climbing protected with big, bomber gear!
scramble/walk southeast or rap off over by Hogwash/Tips Ahoy. be careful rapping, most rap stations are not very bomber

Climbed with C.Green in 6 "pitches" with a 60m. Split p1 into two while climbing behind a party of 3. Crux moves at the bottom are committing, just trust your footwork. The finger section past the OW crack was really fun, but really hard on my toes. Got to improve @ fingercracks. The route can definitely be climbed in 4 comfortable pitches since there are plenty of places to set up belay stations.
Got the crux move on the 2nd pitch. I'm 5'3" and a wee too short for the big jug on the left. Found a nice cut-in crimp lower down on the left. Perfect for leveraging up to back step on the ramp and make the reach for the jug. Definitely rap off.
