Just below the anchors for Satan's Corner is a dihedral with three bolts. This climb forces you to stem almost the entire way up this near vertical line. The stems are mouth-watering and wide, the holds are nearly non-existent, the fall potential is long. If you do Satan's and don't have the fearlessness for this lead, at least TR this route and then do it again. I would almost say this is better than Satan's.
3 bolts and shared anchors with Satan's Corner.

Its actually kinda less scary to lead for some reason. I don't understand why, but it was.

I tried to onsite it, the falls don't feel so good if you come off weird. I haven't gone back to try again, soon... I don't think you need to top rope it either, give it a good english try on lead first.

I admit that I did this on TR. Crazy stuff and movement that I never expected. Would be a PROUD lead!
