A beacon classic! From the third tunnel and follow the obvious line up to the main dihedral (Free For All) and then up to the birds nest. Belay. Climb the offwidth (5.9) to the perch. Belay. Climb up past a tree via hand crack (5.10c). Belay at big ledge. From here, either rap or continue two more pitches to summit.

5 out of 5 stars Great route

The linkup of Free-For-All -> Dod's Jam -> Dastardly Crack is one of my favorite longer routes at beacon. Lots of hand jams, great pro, fantastic views! Can topout or rap with a single 70m rope. A 60 will probably work if you do one extra rap. I fell on the crux a couple years before and landed in the tree. Not really recommended though I only ended up with a few scrapes.
