Starts around the corner to the left from Dodge City on juggy overhanging holds and then traverses rightward to the arete via a horizontal crack. A few more juggy moves up the arete lead to a stance and the last gear opportunity. The holds get real thin from here with crimpers on the left side of the face and slopers around the arete.

Descent Options:

Rappel using Sinsophrenia or Dodge City anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Need to be burly and delicate to get this one clean

The route starts out on big overhanging holds and basically a hand traverse to the arete. Then it gets seriously thin; the DCA suggests you can lead it but I think it deserves a look before you leap.
