Description:

This route uses every technique in the climbers repoitoire. Start beneath the big right facing corner in the middle of the cliff. Climb the corner until you can head right to a nice ledge. A couple of scary moves up a face (crux) take you to the belay ledge. Climb the chimney above to the big roof, traverse right, then head back left above the roof to a belay stance. Climb the chossy face up to the final corner (easy) and belay. Then cruise up the final corner. This is one of the best pitches in the Dacks for the view and the fun moves. Outstanding route.

3 out of 5 stars Hesitation

A quintessential Daks trad climb: a natural line from the bottom to the high point of a cliff, diverse climbing skills, a little suspect rock, and some surprisingly dirty stone for a classic.
Bailed off of the first pitch back in Summer 2006 because my partner refused to go up or down, finally got back to finish this one.

Great Route. Traverse was not as bad as looks getting into it.
