Near the crux at the top.

Work your way up the right facing dihedral. Starts out easy and becomes more sustained at the top. The crux is getting out of the alcove at the top.


Location 

Farther down the trail past Megster and Baby Buzzard. 40' left of Frolicland.

At the belay ledge.  Setting an anchor is easy with tricams and small C3's.

Noticed in DCA that the 5.7 part ends at a small tree lower than we climbed at 40'. It is 5.9 from that ledge to the belay ledge I'm at in the picture.
