BETA PHOTO: A look at the dihedral/crack (5.8).


This is a short, right-angling crack/dihedral in the cliffband above Bullet Hole Rock. Surmount a small bulge at the beginning and layback a fist-sized/OW crack to a somewhat awkward top out.


This is on the small cliffband above Bullet Hole Rock to the right and around the corner from Fingers and Chimney. It is the most promising looking crack that is visible from Bullet Hole Rock and the road.


Fist to OW. Maybe a couple of stoppers for the first couple of moves. You can also top rope off natural features.

This can be easily and naturally jammed as well as laybacked. I jammed it, since I was bouldering with no pad and wanted the security of jams instead of laybacking. It's basically all wide-hands to fists, super solid, good practice for that size.
