View of the upper dihedral portion of the climb.


Begin straight up the middle of the face to the big ledge half way up, then climb the right facing dihedral to the top. The crux is the first couple of moves getting into the dihedral. Plenty of pro for leading, especially after you gain the ledge. Watch out for a loose chockstone in the dihedral.


Start just to the right of the large pedestal and go straight to the ledge and into the dihedral that takes you to the top.


Standard TR set up with varying cracks for pro. Long slings are helpful.

Standard rack to 3" for leading.

I thought this took gear well compared to other climbs at the mounds. Ample supply of features to build an anchor for the second. Descent gully directly behind that exits behind pedestal left
