This is a classic case of a pretty line and a not very good climb. Uphill from The Slot and just below Chestnut, look for a cool looking, dark corner.
Climb this corner to a ledge just below where the corner looks blank. Here you make a decision. Traverse left to easier ground and use the Chestnut tree anchor to descend OR continue up the blank corner at about 5.9 R.
A single set of small cams and stoppers.

I climbed the upper dihedral direct (5.9 R) and thought it was fun (3 stars).
