Dow WilliamsOn the Lamb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2013

Dow Williams

We soloed up to the ledge which we had no trouble locating. Saw somewhere on the web where folks were confused...which confuses me on how they could be. Very straight forward. The first pitch is just a traverse right to find a short vertical crack which gets to the horizontal. The first of two pitches that cover the main horizontal is mellow. Look for the fixed station down a few meters that divides them up. I led the 5.9 crux pitch (3rd roped pitch) The blank feet section is around a blind corner. It is about 40'. A .75 was solid pro at the arete you turn to have full view. Then I just hand-railed it over to my next rest which is what I recommend, keep your arms straight and you will not get pumped. Easier than it looks. We finished on Jailbreak which was worthy. A 2 pitch 5.9 sport climb. The 2nd pitch is the crux and offers neat exposure, and well bolted after you reach the first bolt off the belay. Walk down the back side by angling right.
