Description 

Climb up the crack passing the roof on the right side as you enter the hanging dihedral. Stem, lieback and jam up the thin crack (crux) in the corner. Continue up the crack to a ledge. Bear hug your way past a couple of bolts to the summit. Be prepared to test your gear placing skills while under pressure.

Location 

To locate this route walk past all of the routes to the east end of Weather Watchers Wall. A small buttress lies a short distance to the east. This route climbs the main left facing, hanging dihedral and crack system. There is a backwards "C" shaped crack just left of the lower portion of this route.

Protection 

Brass Nuts, Stoppers, Cams to 2.5", two bolts
Bolted Chain Anchors
