Description 

Climb the first pitch of Diedre to the bolted anchor (5.6 slab and jugs). From the anchor move up and right into a slab corner that arches to the right(5.7 slab and irregular finger crack). Pull over the small roof around a small tree growing in the crack and move up on the face heading toward the right side of a large vegetated ledge and belay from a tree (5.9 slab; possible to clip a bolt from Over the Rainbow). Walk up and left on the ledge until you reach the large corner. Head up the slightly dirty corner through a tree/bush (5.7 slab and loose fingers/tight hands). Continue up the corner to a horizontal crack under a small roof and traverse to the right. Continue moving up to the right until you reach Broadway Ledge(5.6 slab with finger crack).


Location 

Start at Diedre and move right at first pitch anchors, staying left of the bolted slab line, Over the Rainbow.


Protection 

Nuts and cams to 2".
