This dihedral starts right off the deck with some pretty interesting and thin moves, easing up as the route progresses. At the horizontal, if desired, place a small cam for that "Extra" security. Walk off toward Keys Ranch. It does involve a few fun moves...can be downclimbed via ramp with some fifth class friction moves...not recommended for beginners...


2 bolts. Horizontal crack inbetween the two bolts will take a small cam. No anchors on top... Medium pro in Horizontal at top of route. Medium Tri-Cams work great!

Both bolts on Sicker than Jezouin were replaced 1/2003.

If this thing were longer than fifteen feet of pretty cool moves it would get more than one star IMO... It could just as easily be done as a boulder problem, as the top section is not that interesting...again just my opinion...

I'll be honest, I thought this climb more like .11-. Allows for some nice stemming.
