Dow WilliamsDike Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2015

Classic simply for the dike, have to give it 5/5 for that alone. Combined with Aqua Knobby for a half days worth of climbing during stormy weather. Led all of the pitches. Not sure how anyone can miss the last bolt on the crux pitch. Once I pulled the bulge, it was just 20' above my head. I believe folks who are at this grade for leading are making it sound scarier than it is. But no, it is not the gym. Thought all the foot work was quite positive. You just don't always have hands. We soloed up to the "X" in the dikes. Thought the topo was on money from there. Went to right below the roof, a 70m raps the route well with a small scramble down at the very end.
