Dallas from T O's Main Ridge

Chuck Bodie secures his hat. The locally famous "Climbing Coonie Family" say that they had minimal difficulty and no rope on thier summit of Dallas by climbing the aspect in view... they wore mocasins perhaps? It does apper that some of the Dallas route finding could be shortened by following this approach past West Dallas and accross to the last difficulties.

West Dallas to Dallas traverse is not trivial

After gaining the ridge of West Dallas Peak, from the north side, we had no desire to attempt to negotiate the notch in the ridge between West Dallas and Dallas Peak. You can see the notch in the ridge above the Chuck's (the climber in the picture) left shoulder.

Dallas

I'm not sure how sane the Coonies are... Ropes might help, but I imagine the loose rock situation rarely looks rope'able.
