Description 

This route climbs a short clean dihedral with very minimal protection. The crux is pulling off the ground, which involves slightly pumpy moves on decent holds to gain a stance about 6 ft off the ground. Continue up the faint seam to gain a low-angle slab to the top. The climbing moves are good, but the route is short and the protection is also kind of dubious. It provides a quick route to reach the treed ledge above where you can explore setting up top-ropes on the chimney climbs, or look for a possible second pitch to the top.


Location 

Located between the two short chimneys near the east end of the shady side. Start above a small bush directly to the right of Uncle Wriggly


Protection 

Small wires and small cams. You will likely only be able to place two pieces during the first 20 ft, the rest is low-angle (5.2?) slab but run-out to the top. No fixed anchors.
