Shallow Dihedral.

Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


This route is the left-most route that I know of on Cadillac Crag. It's short and not particularly great, but it is nice entertainment and might coach your footwork. A TR can be set from the walk-off on the left side of Cadillac Crag. Rossiter originally rated the route "5.12?", but it is probably only 5.11-.


The route can be protected on creative small stoppers and brass nuts (HBs or RPs).

Was able to fiddle in two small offset brassies and a red ball nut in the lower 5' of the dihedral, but it pinches shut completely after that, so be prepared to run it out. I mantled onto the good flake/crimp on the right wall before deciding that the lead was too much and backing down. You won't hit the ground falling out of the dihedral (if the gear holds), but you will need a high level of confidence in your small gear as it will be holding quite a fall if you do blow it near the top.
