Description 

My vote for best climb in the Dihedrals. A great change of pace, the wild crux of this route involves working with cracks through traverses and roofs. Used to be 11b which seemed fair. Hard to clean on lower. There is a low 5th class approach pitch.


Location 

The leftmost route in the Dihedrals.

Steep and fun route with big moves over blocks. One caveat however- on the lower, if self-cleaning the draws rather then someone following, the rope saws over sharp edges of the blocks (the first ascentionist neglected to round them) to the extent that I was literally waiting for the rope to part. Recommendation- have someone follow and clean or rap with tension from your belayer and clean.
