Description 

It doesn't really look like a route, it's so short. Follow the dihedral up, occasionally using the opposite face to stem out. There's a fair amount of lichen on the route - it must not be climbed often.


Location 

This is the farthest right dihedral on the main section of the rock.


Protection 

Some medium length slings.

I liked the moves on this climb, fun stemming and cool moves, would get three stars if it was 50 feet longer.

I thought I did this climb based on the Mark Rolofson topo, but I may have climbed a short crack even further right. I did not have a dihedral for stemming, but the rating felt about right.
