Dow WilliamsDick's Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2008

Dow Williams

Did Gargoyle (5.10a to the left) and Dicks Route after losing out on Kahl...only 2 other parties ahead of us too! Had already done Smeagol. Gargoyle's 2nd pitch and Dick's 3rd pitch were both nice pitches. The rest of both routes were not worth much. A few hard to see pitons and a chockstone help you protect that 3rd pitch. I had a 70m rope and combined the chimney section atop a piton rappel station with the last pitch bypassing a bolted station. Made for a nice sustained pitch. Some cool moves towards the end as you move right into the easy finish ramp. With Shaun P.
