Wobbly dihedral is definantely one of the best 5.9 leads at DLSP. The gear is excellent and the crux is more balance than power. Climb up the clean, arching left facing dihedral 10 fett left of chez's chimney. once you reach the end of the crack you will be at the crux. A couple of exciting moves out and up lead you to easier terrain to the top. The only complaint with this climb is that the dihedral doesn't continue for another 100 feet. Gitt onn itt!
everything from # 10 hex to # 3 brass offsets on this climb. Gear starts big and progressively gets smaller as you climb

A great first 5.9 lead at Devils Lake. The pro is good and the crux is short.

Nice route. I thought it was a touch easier than 5.9.
A Met #0 Master cam protected the thin seam very well.

Really good crux but the climbing eases significantly after which. I think the grades are pretty spot on at sandstone area.
