A highly aesthetic dihedral which catches your eye before any of the other routes on the Hybrid Wall. The rock is almost perfectly smooth throughout the climb. A few micro-edges help get you establsished in the dihedral, and then it's all smearing and bridging until you reach the headwall. The rock on the headwall is fairly crumbly.
The anchors are somewhat awkward to reach from the top, as they are a few feet below the edge of the summit, which is also sloped downward. No rap-rings are present. Some people top-rope this climb from the Loading Bay anchors.
The anchors, 2 3/8" bolts appear to be in good condition. The thin seam is too small, and the rock is too fragile to lead this climb safely.
