5 out of 5 stars 2011 Devils Lake Route of the Year?

Awesome lead. I've seen more people on this thing than ever before. Takes skill, finesse, and a level head. A must do for all aspiring DL leaders. I consider it bad style to place gear in Upper D after the piton (where the lines diverge) as this isn't the line you're leading. After leaving the crack of Upper D place 2 C3's and top this bad boy out. Super fun

5 out of 5 stars Send On

Went back this spring and sent it first try this season. Awesome climb which is committing and exciting. Gear is good except for the top I didn't have anything that could protect the dihedral.

3 out of 5 stars Sent Spring 2011

A fun climb with a spicy finish. Pretty much all face climbing except for one painful jam right off the start. Arguably only PG-13 instead of R but you decide.

4 out of 5 stars Sweeet!

Got on this climb after shooting photos of a friend's send. Great movement and just scary enough to keep you making good decisions.

4 out of 5 stars Thin gear, top is run out

Felt harder than Upper D on lead and the gear is much smaller. There is a good ledge about 15 ft before the top but I couldn't find any gear above the ledge. Fun route, bold lead.

3 out of 5 stars Just a tricky start

Once you get the start you're golden. Three distinct ledges provide hands free rests. My only free solo to date.

4 out of 5 stars My First Devil's Lake .12a

Worked it for an hour or two and finally linked all the moves in beautiful October weather. The crux was sticking the really long diagonal traverse move to a oneish finger sloper ridge... which is just before the out of reach jug ledge 6 inches further left. If you get this far you should be able to finish the route.

4 out of 5 stars Great!

Really fun climb, a must do if you're at Long Wall. Classic, clean and sustained climbing with little surprises.
