This climb is a short layback dihedral on the South American Boulders. At only 30' in length, it is short but is strenuous for the grade.
Fliers surveys the dihedral.

Its easy to set up a TR (a #4, #3, and #2 C4 work nicely) on this climb by scrambling up the boulders around the right hand side from the crack. Marvel at the 13b arete climb as you pass by it. That thing is beast!

Beta: jamming your right foot straight makes the whole climb a lot less strenuous than a full layback.
A #4 is crucial and a #5 is twice as nice!
