ApproachFrom Lunch Rock and headed towards The Trough, Dave's Deviation will be three lines to the right of The Trough. Noticable by the bush sticking out of the crack at about 45'.
Route DescriptionA beautiful finger crack leading up to a bush (if it's still there) and continuing to a bolted anchor on a small ledge. This is a sustained crack with some serious jamming.
Second pitch stays 5.9 with a cruxy move in the thin crack. Continue onto the face to a belay shared by Jam Crack (to the left of Dave's)
Pitch three mellows to a 5.8 but with a committing move across an arch and eventually find yourself at a belay on The Trough.
Variations to summit abound.
Essential GearPro is very thin up to 2". Nuts and TCUs on first pitch necessary.
Short draws for first pitch, you'll need runners for the following pitch.
