New Dover Problems!

A couple new moderates on Dover! This winter, Dover island surprised us again by shifting a few tonnes of granite JUST far enough to give us something new to climb!

First up is Kilo V3, an aesthetic steep arete line just past the Wave V5 on boulder recently rolled out from cliff. Sitting start with hands on obvious crimps and heel hook. Work up arete, top out right.

The Junebug Traverse V2 is between the Warm-up Area and the Wave, you won't miss it if you take the low walking route near the ocean. From a sit start on the low ramp, traverse around the corner through around 50 feet of smears and heel hooks to top out at the obvious jug deep in the alley. 

For more bang for your buck, traverse the outside edge of the newly formed alley, or reverse the Junebug Traverse, both of these lines are also in the V2 range. The alley is shady through most of the day and makes a great spot for a siesta or a quick warm-up!

(New lines have been added to the Dover - Under Development Topo until sufficient development to establish their own independant topo)
