Climbing at the Dihedrals.
Photo by Blitzo.


Like the name implies, this cliff is basically a series of massive corner systems, yielding some fine arete and stem problems as well as some pretty good crack climbs.

Getting There 

From the bottom of the upper approach take the left trail and skirt the talus slope to the left, crossing the telephone pole over the swamp and up around the pink slab.
