Better than it looks. Small stoppers and TCUs. Place high in Upper D from Alcove to protect crux.

Climb face left of Upper Diagonal to alcove with fixed pin. From alcove move right to the obvious flake, countinue up and slightly right to top.

5 out of 5 stars 2011 Devils Lake Route of the Year?

Awesome lead. I've seen more people on this thing than ever before. Takes skill, finesse, and a level head. A must do for all aspiring DL leaders. I consider it bad style to place gear in Upper D after the piton (where the lines diverge) as this isn't the line you're leading. After leaving the crack of Upper D place 2 C3's and top this bad boy out. Super fun

Best 5.10 lead at DL, though not led as often as it should be. The climbing up to the alcove is run out, but relatively simple. Place high gear in Upper D, and cast onto the face. This is typical Devil's Lake: run out, but safe (I know, I took the fall) crimping up perfect purple stone. A small stopper in an incipient crack and a TCU keyed into a slot complete the experience.
