BETA PHOTO: "Right of the Eye" is the dihedral.


"Right of the Eye" is the inside corner that starts about 10 feet right of Pine Tree Dihedral. The route starts out with blocky moves, then makes its way up into an inside corner. Near the top you will pass to the right of a large block with an overhang (this is the "right" eye, while the block above Pine Tree Dihedral is the "left" eye). Stay right of the overhang and climb to the top using the crack in the corner along with some ledges to get to the top.

Although not too difficult of a climb, it is unique because of the contortions your body will be forced to make. The pro is good- very good. I used all muscles in my body on this route and it was pretty fun. It feels slightly like an alpine climb because of the approach to the base of the route is through grassy ledges and trees and shit.

Loved this climb. Pulled the roof and found that to be strenous. I would say around 5.7. Overall a great climb and good pro all the way.
