Description 

A classic one-move wonder that climbs one of the coolest dihedrals around. Clip the bolt, pull the hard move, clip the pin, then stem your way up and out the perfect corner to the top.


Location 

To the left of Zydygo- the obvious dihedral that you want to climb.


Protection 

One bolt, one pin, then small nuts and cams.

This is a really fun climb. The crux is significantly harder than the rest, but the climbing isn't over afterwards by any means. The stemming is mega fun, and the roof at the top is committing and interesting.
