This climbs the right face only of the Cul-de-Sac dihedral. Presumably it tops out the same as Cul-de-Sac, however you can climb the face/corner to the left of the standard top out. Doing this adds a few fun slab moves and makes the climb more continuous. I also thought this was harder than Hales Corner.
