Description 

Start either on a shelf above your belayer at the base of an obvious left-facing corner, or work a couple simple face moves directly below said shelf to add a few unnecessary feet to your climb. Climb in the dihedral with great cracks for pro, then move out to the arete as the dihedral deteriorates. There is no walkoff, so be prepared to rappel.


Location 

Head to the right side of the Zulu Wall. A trail leads up some steep terrain to the base of an obvious left-facing dihedral.


Protection 

Pro to 2in.
Two bolt anchor with rap rings.

Must do climb (even if its a warmup). Just wish it was longer.

Much more difficult than appearances suggest, and no gimme for the grade. Two nice ASCA ring bolts on top for rappelling.

Great route, good pro. I probably climbed this 10 times in a row when I was learning to place gear.

Is this really 90 ft? I think around 60 is closer, even with the scrambling at the base.
