Cale right after hitchin' the steel rod.

Description 

30 yards left of the The White Dike, take the slab 15 feet, and go up to the steel rod and girth hitch a sling doubled with another sling to avoid hitting it on a fall. (Be careful on the next move! There's a bomber #0.5 Camalot up 10 feet to the left, but a fall from here could be bad!) Now just follow the crack to the belay. This has super good pro with some sketchy spots. Follow the last big flake up to a creative belay. There is a nice rap off the back! 9-11-09.

Eds. Please do not climb here. This is on private property. The landowner has confirmed that they do not want anyone climbing here.

Location 

30 yards left of the The White Dike. Have fun!

Protection 

Standard rack. Set of nuts with doubles #1, #2,and #3 Camalots.

I''ll have to give these new climbs a go. Why the name "1976"?

The year of the flood.

Thought that maybe the steel rod for the first piece of pro had something to do with the flood, so I thought 1976 would fit this line. Good climbing to a nice belay!

Good climbing. Really good jams. I agree with the PG-13. The start was technical reminiscent of eldo climbing. Adventurous 9+
