Trip: Sawtooths - FA: Lawdogs' Lament III 5.10- A1-2


Date: 8/24/2008


Trip Report:



baron in all its glory




We climbed Lawdogs' Lament and Deliverance this August and climber Tallboys last summer.

Pitch 1


65m 5.9-

Squeeze and go, run the rope out to the best belay place.



Pitch:2 55m 5.10- Head up the chimney/offwidth and then step out left to a slab to gain a RFC. Take this up under an offwidth on the left side of the chimney. Traverse out to some airy moves and head straight up finger and hands five feet left of the offwidth. Belay just below the Splitter RFC.


Pitch 3



90ft 53.9- All the Red and Gold BD's you wanna give it.

Belay on a ledge



Pitch 4


Take the far left line off the ledge and wiggle up the squeeze to a finger crack in a flake up to an off hands crack.

5.9- 35m


Pitch 5: go around to the west face of the summit block and start up the bolt ladder.

This pitch took three days and was put up in 1949. We finally put a summit register on the top.



This thing is kinda crazy. One of the last aid bolts is a metal dole sticking six inches out of the hole.









Rappel: You can now rappel down the east face with a 70M rope and some low 5th class downclimbing.


It's are belief that this is the best moderate route in this area. All of the pitch's are on bomber rock and provide an excellent route to the top with all the pitch's climbing between 5.9- and 5.10-.


Gear: Double set through #3 BD and 1 #4 BD.
