Description 

The Dihedrals is an south/south-easterly facing crag uphill from The Spires just beyond the Outrage Wall that offers many great bolted crack lines (along with a couple of gear protected lines too) on really nice rock. The dark limestone is smoother and more heavily cracked than the rock at other areas. Most of the lines are 100+ feet making for some long one-pitch lines or shorter two-pitch lines.

Getting There 

After walking into EPC, pass through the gate beyond the pavilion where there is often a guy stationed in his camper truck charging climbers 10 pesos or 1 USD to pass through. The legality of this fee is questionable but it's not expensive so... Continue on the road for a short distance and head right uphill on one of the trails for the Spires/Outrage Wall. The Blue Dot trail on the north side of the spires or the Pink Dot trail on the south side of the spires will both get you to The Dihedrals area. Take either trail to a solid trail uphill of the spires and keep going uphill on loose trail over a small rise and back down a bit to the dihedrals. The dark corners of the dihedrals will be obvious. This takes about 20-30 minutes from the pavilion in EPC.

Leading up the goodness that is Dead Man Walking.

Dead Man Walking 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  North America : Mexico : ... : The Dihedrals
Dead Man Walking is the route that makes the walk to the Dihedrals worth it but only if you enjoy bolt-protected, great crack climbing in a nice corner. It's a beautiful line following a pair of good cracks up a long dihedral. Start out on lower angle but polished rock following the bolted cracks through a couple of bulges before making a few positive face moves left out of the dihedral to the anchors. There isn't one real crux move, it's just sustained crack and corner climbing the whole way....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

The Dihedrals area is obvious from the approach trail.  The edge of the Surf Bowl area can be seen just to the right of the Dihedrals as can the start of the classic long route, Time Wave Zero.
