Surely one of the best lines in the Valley, one of the most independent, and an awesome location.

Dean continues to show his mastery of freeclimbing in all it's forms.

The amazing thing is that a route of that quality in one of the most popular climbing areas on earth waits so long for a second.

Really an inspired and inspiring climb, for the the first ascenders as well as for Dean and Leo and anyone who comes later.

Doesn't Southern Belle proceed through that crescent arch in Le Bruce's second pic? The arch in the middle of the face?

Try this link to read about the 3rd free ascent by Stanhope and Honnold in 2010, and for a photo overlay showing where the route goes:

Nice job, as usual, on the overlays!

That side of The Dome has some really bold stuff on it! Weird that we only hear about Southern Belle and Karma, anybody done the other routes lately? Way over my pay-grade, but are there second-ascents on the others?

Filling station for the imagination
Waste not your youth
For surely it, youth, was wasted on me,
That I regret not shuffling farther than I did
Seeing at least twice as much would still not be enough
Said to have only an hour to see Yosemite,
The rangers tell it over and over
Just sit down right here, and cry.
