4 out of 5 stars Loose rock

This was a good climb to get you ready to do jolt. This climb has some exposure but not nearly as much as jolt. I 1-hung this because I came to a spot that had loose rock. I couldn't see a way around it at first so I just took. After lowering a local told me that this rock has been loose for some time and it is okay to pull on. It has held so far...I am still weary of pulling on a loose rock.

5 out of 5 stars Wow

I liked this better than Jolt. In fact, I would go so far as saying this is my favourite climb to date. I thought it was closer to 5.10a than 5.9, but each to their own! Cannot recommmend more highly. If you manage to get lucky and find a time when both Jolt and Dolt are free, have a friend climb the opposite one and steal each other's footholds.

3 out of 5 stars Well

Fun route, but the top is full of loose rock. the holds you need are solid for the most part, but a lot of the periphery stuff is loose, so be careful.
