Another steep, sporty, and balancy Dihedrals climb. While it may not be the classic that Heinous Cling is, it's definately worth doing. A tricky thin traversing crux comes near the top by the last bolt.

Latin Lover is in the box-shaped enclave on the right end of the Dihedrals, and is on the face directly opposite from To Bolt or Not to Be.

A good one for hot summer days as it stays in the shade for most of the day. It is definitely easier for those with smaller fingers, as a lot of the holds are pretty small.

What a beautiful route. Sustained and persistent with no stopper moves. Just remember your sequence and don't step on her toes. She is a fickle one. Great in cold weather. Goes in the sun just after noon in autumn.

Small positive knobs and sidepulls define the style.
