Second Second ascent by: toeknee on 2011-10-08 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Sweet climbing, would do again.

I led P1 (5.5-ish?), and then Ted led the real stuff through the roofs. First roof is really a delicate traverse around it with great hand-sized gear in the roof. Ted did a great job on lead, but I tried something that didn't work and took some tension to get back on. Second roof is a jug-pull-through-throw-up-foot move that I'm more used to from the gunks.

Great lead Ted!

Saw a spotted salamander and a striped one (skink?) sunning on the rock while belaying Ted.

5 out of 5 stars A great climb!

A route that proves the DWG is a good place to go climbing. Exciting, but well protected. The undercling crux a little scary as the feet are pretty slippery.

Second Second ascent by: Pennsy on 2009-09-07 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Awesome roofs!

The 2 hangs are a blast. The undercling is awkward as heck, especially with a slippery right foot, looks impossible from below, but doable. The 2nd roof is not as hard but just as fun. Reach up right to a great handhold and throw in a high left heel hook into the horizontal crack. Walked off left and rapped from the Rib. Kudos to my partner John G on his first Gap 8 lead. Great stiff.
