The start of the intimidating dihedral.


The first route put up on the wall that ascends the obvious wide hands corner in the center of the face.
As said in Dave Bingham's guidebook, "A rather strenuous effort" this route definitely packs a punch.
A tricky start from the right leads to the base of this off hands corner. Hand jam/chimney/stem your way up the crack on solid pro to the top.


This is located in the center of the wall and the most obvious line.


This is a traditional route so there isn't a bolted anchor and the gear goes up to wide hand sized pieces.

oooofph! Save yourself the agony and hike up to Eagle Rock and do the wonderful 5.10a crack up there instead.

Seemed like a fun route, you can rap off the sport anchors left.
