  • Description 

    Start as for Doric Dihedral and bust out left to the overhang and arete via bolts. Crimp small holds in the overhang, slap to arete, eventually gaining a now much smaller and slopey lip hold, hang the lip swing and fire onto the face above up to a two bolt belay.

    Location 

    Climb out the severly overhanging face and arete just left of Doric Dihedral. Start as for Doric Dihedral and bust out left to the overhang and arete via bolts. Crimp small holds in the overhang, slap to arete, eventually gaining a now much smaller and slopey lip hold, hang the lip swing and fire onto the face above up to a two bolt belay.

    Protection 

    Bolt clipping to a two bolt belay, rap to ground.

    I can remember in the late '80s or early nineties, a photograph of Dale Goddard climbing this line, but it was called "Face the Present" and graded .13c. Was there some kind of hullabaloo over this? I also recall resistance to the 5.14 grade as well. Not all that important but a curiousity.
