Description 

Starts just right of Samson and Delilah (12+) and Tradmaster (dihedral, 11). Tradmaster and Gossamer share the first perma.

Boulder up the corner of the ledge just to the right of the roof with the 5 perma-draws (2 of them will be yellow webbing as of this post). Once you boulder up to the start, move to the dihedral with the first low hanging perma. If you like your belayer, place a #3 C4 in the crack just below the first perma to anchor them in.

From here climb up the dihedral but trend right to the next perma (yellow webbing). Continue trending right through the perma-draws. At the 5th perma, you will go up, out of the roof, and slightly left to a single bolt. Continue climbing above this to a two bolt anchor.

  • NOTE: The DCA puts this route as Ardian's Route.


Location 

Ledge just to the right of Samson and Delilah (12+) / Tradmaster (11). Tradmaster and Gossamer share the first perma in the dihedral


Protection 

5 perma-draws on route, single bolt once you pull the roof at the 5th perma, to a single bolt anchor.

Bring 2 draws and something to anchor your belayer (#3 C4)

Yellow webbing perma-draws are good as of this post; as well as, the other perma-draws and biners.

This route is called Gossamer and it shares it's first bolt with Tradmaster, not Samson and Delilah. It also has a 2 bolt anchor with carabiners.

Thanks Sam. What is Ardian's Route then? Looking at how the DCA placed this route in the guidebook, Airdian's route is on the same line as Gossamer.
