The route.

Description 

Start in the nice, left-facing dihedral atop a clean gently sloping granite slab. Climb the dihedral using finger/layback moves and pull up onto the obvious ledge to the right. Move right along the ledge, and then climb a short offwidth through hands up to the anchors (two bolts).

This route was surprisingly nice. Could make a nice warmup before doing something longer on the wall.


Location 

This is located about 40 feet right of Bandito in a short but beautiful-looking, left-facing dihedral. The anchors are visible from below.


Protection 

Standard trad rack: small pieces to large hand pieces. A #4 Camalot or equivalent may be useful.

Passing the OW at Three's Company on top rope. All the rocks that are in the main route photo appear to still be there. Is there one I'm missing? 5/14/11.

Three's Company indeed, OW crux (for me) felt like Jack Tripper trying to cop a feel off of Chrissy... damn, almost got it!

That finger start feels as aesthetic as it looks, really fun climb.

I believe that the medium-sized rock at the base of the widest part of the offwidth in the photo has fallen, making the first moves in the crack a little more reachy. A #3 or #4 Camalot will be useful.

Wonderful route!

Agreed that rock is gone, and I am not tall enough to make the reach to the jam, so it requires some a little chimney technique to get into the wide part.

I'm not sure which rock you guys are talking about. I was there this weekend, and all the rocks in this photo seem to still be there. I wasn't looking for that while I was there, but the rocks in my photos seem to match this one perfectly.

Fun route. Skipped the #4 Camalot (take it anyway) and placed a #12 stopper in the pinch at the top of the OW. Nice slabbing (feet) to the right. Great warm-up.
