4 out of 5 stars Both pitches are nice.

A warning to the aspiring 5.9 leader: Pitch 1 (5.9) protects well, but a few of the critical placements are pretty pumpy. Pitch 2 (5.6) is great climbing and exposure, not dirty, some lichen, but it doesn't get in the way.

2 out of 5 stars Toxic Shock

I did not find this one easy to protect and therefore wasn't very enjoyable for me.

4 out of 5 stars Very aestethic

Great way to start Dopey. Not too hard and very easy to protect. Nice crack climbing.

3 out of 5 stars Pumpy little fingercrack

A funky fingercrack that is hard to protect at one section until you use your imagination. Good footholds combined with some slopey hands make for a decent pump on the first half of the crux pitch.
