Dow WilliamsBlack Dagger  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2008

With Patrick. Not quite what I was expecting. Not as good as Armatron in my opinion. Two neat pitches though, #2 and #3. Climbed Myster Z to get to Brownstone Wall this time, that is a pleasant way to ascend to this level vs hiking past Crimson. Did not have to lie back or anything on the 3rd pitch. Seems 5.7 to me. I understand the two run outs might be a bit much for new climbers. Great rock though. Pitch 2 had much more exposure of course and the rock not as sound, but fun and exciting to do. Do not have to rap on this descent, can squeeze down everywhere. I did take a #5 which makes sense for a placement at the beginning of the first run out on the 3rd pitch. Cheers.

Awesome day out on the rock. No other parties, great views. Approach and descent were a little heavy, but well worth it.

This was my first multi-pitch roped climb with a more experienced climbing partner (Robert Tanner) and it was a great experience. We descended the Gunsight down to Juniper Canyon in the dark - a not as great experience.

Me, Aarash Sofla, Chris Umphres, and Laren Sexton climbed Black Dagger while on a spring break trip with Outdoors at UVA. Beautiful climb! A bit cold coming down.
