Description 

Great dihedral climbing on yet another classic Seneca 5.7. Do it! Start as for Pleasant Overhangs and just go straight up the dihedral. The 2 pitch method requires long draws down low and belaying from the small ledge w/small tree rather far up the system. The crux is towards the end of this pitch.

Location 

Shares the start w/Pleasant Overhangs around the corner from Thais.

Built a near hanging belay in the corner just above the PO belay at P1. Crux was about 15 feet above this P1 belay. Belayed from the large pine tree. Went up slightly to the left end at the Alcoa Presents to wrap the East face.

Lots of poor rock on the 2nd pitch. Be careful of your foot placements, so as not to rain rock on your belayer. Not one of the better 7s at Seneca.
