Description 

This climb is the perfect dihedral running up the center of the rock. This climb is consistently tough with wide hands. The start is akward, keep your feet in the crack and jam away. The climb can be partially done as a lie back. However, stay in the crack for best results.


Protection 

Use medium size cams. Gear anchor at top set back pretty far. Do not toprope without and extender rope. Climb takes good gear so lead it.

This has perfect rock quality. It takes a #3 Camalot in the middle and #2s at the start and finish. The climb has about 25' of steep climbing.

only stem at the very beginning, otherwise, stay in the crack

I give it a 10b rating just because of the topout and it's overhanging, somewhat strenuous pull over the top lip (yes, I do topout on boulders).

The 4th picture is probably the best in terms of showing the angle; the right wall is fairly overhung. I think the best word to describe this route would be burly. Lot of fun though and easy to set a top-rope on if you're not up for leading it.

This things looks quite a bit different from the pics when you're actually at the base...and feels pretty burly when trying to exit at the top. Great climb.
