This beautiful tight corner is worth the visit.

Description 

A beautiful and shady corner. The walls on either side of the narrow corner are very flat, but have a number of good pockets. A handful of techniques can be used to ascend the corner, and the difficulty of the climb will vary depending on your climbing style.


Location 

It's a very recognizable dihedral, almost narrow enough to be a chimney, with clean smooth walls. Both D. Jackson's book and the on-line topo refer to this climb as "Dihedral #1".


Protection 

Small wires adequetly protect the narrow corner but can be tricky to place and do not give a lot of confidence on the quality of rock found here. A few small-medium wires/cams can protect the top section. 2-bolt chain anchor at the top.

CONDITION REPORT 

I left a nut with a draw on the route. Due to a shoulder injury I had to bail off the route mid-climb. It would be great to get the draw back if someone happens to climb the route.
Thanks, Joe
