Jon Cannon into the maw of Idi Amin. Photo by Tim...


A fairly easy introduction to Palisades climbing. Climb right-leaning dihedral to first of series of large platforms. Blocky and easy, the crux is right off the ground.


Take the obvious right-leaning dihedral up to the top.


Can be protected with large hexes and cams.

I believe this is a photo of the scramble on the trail side of king. Idi Amin is a dihedral on King. Good pic tho!
