This dihedral is mostly 5.7 finger crack with a short well-protected 5.8 crux at the top. Rated 5.7 during it's re-discovery in the early 90's, the guidebooks have bumped it up to 5.8, and a 5.7 leader won't be happy. It's seen enough traffic so that it's not all that loose anymore, but it's main value lies in that it lets you get to the good stuff on the Upper Tier
Team KNB (Kisiel, Newell, Beguin) is responsible for the anchor at the top of this pitch. The name Snazz By Nazz
these guys gave to this pitch was unfortunately forgotten (and is one of the cooler route names around). Thanks Scott for this historical info.
Standard trad rack 1 set nuts, 1 set cams. (If continuing up Guillotine Crack's pitch 2
or Rolling Brown Out
, you'll want more gear.)
From the 2-bolt anchor, you can rappel back to the Grotto with a single 60m rope.
