Description 

This route ascends a right-facing dihedral system up to a wide crack (that narrows down) through an overhang. It starts to the right of the face that contains Peril-less Journey. I started by clipping the first bolt of a new sport route just to the right of Peril-less Journey and then firing straight up the dihedral. There are many dubious flakes along the way, and the rock is not great until you're just below the overhang and wide crack. The rock is quite solid from there to the top.

I finished by reaching over to the left and clipping the anchor of Burning Down the House. I'm sure the route continued a few feet more to the top when it was first put up, but we didn't do that.

The route can be seen in the beta photo for Burning Down the House. It's to the right of that route.


Protection 

Standard rack to #4 Friend. Doubles of hand-size pieces would be useful. Although I didn't have one, a much larger piece might work in the wide crack at the start of the overhang. I was comfortable without such a piece.
