This climb is perhaps 100m up the hill from the 'Move Like A Stud' area. It is a huge, red, right-facing, dihedral that starts small but gets big. Although it is attractive from a distance, the rock quality on the bottom 2/3 leaves something to be desired.
Start at a crack with some lichen and some questionable rock. Climb up through improving conditions to reach the bottom of the massive hanging dihedral. Start placing gear and continue climbing up. About 5m from the top, the rock becomes very solid and less featured. Place a few pieces and execute a 5.9 crux to topout. A trad anchor can be set at the top of medium to large stoppers and small to medium cams.
Descend as for other area routes, via the 4th class descent or rap the station above 'Move Like A Stud.'
A standard rack to 2.5".
