Description 

Large ominous looking dihedral just to the right of Pop Bottle. The route starts up the corner with thin fingers and dikes. The very start is a bit runnout if you're not packing some small offset nuts. Otherwise, you can sew it up. Continue up to a short chimney section where you place good gear deep inside and climb on the dikes on the outside. The difficulty backs off a bit and you reach a large ledge where you have to crawl out right across and over a large block that looks as if it could fall at any minute. Don't worry, its a lot more solid than it looks. Now continue up the corner making a few 5.9 moves (with good pro) to avoid some bushes. Finish on the large ledge just below East Corner. A great alternative first pitch to East Corner.


Location 

Finish by walking the third class ramp to the left or better yet, on East Corner.


Protection 

Cams .5"-2" Nuts 1 set, RP's (offsets usefull)
