Description:

Bring your garden tools (update:) there are flowers around but the route itself is pretty clean. Presumably named for the abundance of dandelion-colored lichen up the right side. A fun variety of cracks, dihedrals & even face-climbing; many holds available so it's up to you.

Descent Options:

Scramble down to the anchors of Crazy Alice (to the left of the climb) one rope will get you to the base.

Fun long route. It was made to be more of a 5.8 to go off route and do a variation on the face to the left. I really liked it that way. Multiple difficulties off of one TR is always a plus.

3 man team with 2 ropes. I trailed and cleaned the protection. First time on a non-top rope climb. First time to deal with protection. Made it a two pitch route due to rope drag. Belayed at the dead tree (not an anchor!).
