Dow WilliamsBoulder Dash  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 2, 2015

Dow Williams

One of the last of Miramontes'starred 5.9's I climbed in the park. Not sure how it evaded me. Echo is normally crowded and I avoid it I guess. Cool route, he gives it 2 stars, but it is not near as sustained as most starred 5.9's. Everything but the final dihedral is mostly 5.6 at most. The dihedral is full on albeit short. The pro is not steady, flared pockets, etc. Stem when it pinches down to fingers to make a smooth transition. There is a rap just to climbers left (Ground UP or Shut UP). If with multiple folks or relatively new to climbing, I advise walking off. The rap is on the edge, would be hard to manipulate for some.
