Comments: The route you're seeing is Dizzy Daze, a 5.11d put up by Bill Ohran.

Comments: There are ring anchors at the top of the rock rib separating this route from Thin Line (the next route to the right).

Comments: I believe the "trees" in the old JS guide are a bit farther up the gully, at the top to be precise. Thanks to whoever put in the rock anchors (Brian?), they are far more sensible.

Comments: Some older topos and guides have given this route an R rating; this refers to the route as it was originally bolted. Jason Stevens, the first ascensionist, returned in 2012 to add a few bolts, removing the R rating. Very worthwhile for the awesome exposed jug haul on the third pitch headwall.

Comments: This route was drilled by Jason Stevens sometime in the 1990s (?). He was putting in enough routes at the time that he never got around to climbing it! According to Jason he had a surplus of angles at the time so the top section of this route is all bomber drilled and glued pitons. Originally designed to be climbed in one pitch, rapped in two.

Comments: Does anyone know why there is a two-bolt anchor just up from the notch after the second rappel? No tat attached, plenty of cracks nearby to place gear, kind of ridiculous. I'd love to hear that they're there for a cool reason. Otherwise, WTF.

Comments: So, anyone care to venture a rating on the lines on this slab?
