The obvious right facing dihedral in the center of the face. Don't underestimate this one. Definitely harder than it appears from the ground. Varied, technical but strenuous moves lead up the dihedral, exiting out left near the top. Engaging. Originally done without bolts!

great route but I thought the finish was kind of ugly.

Hey there,
Left my GriGri 2 up at the base of this route on Aug 10th.

Went up there a few days later and not to be found. If you happened to pick it up I would love to get it back thanks!
