The direct start of Vector Trouble

Description 

Near the left (west) end of Long Wall is this striking orange dihedral above a ledge. Take the leftmost of three cracks to get to the ledge and belay to reduce rope drag. Then fire up the classic dihedral, stemming on good edges and dropping bomber nuts in the finger crack.

Don't let the roof intimidate you. You get gear above your head as you edge out to the arete.

Pull the exposed lip move on good holds and hike otthe ledge. Walk off left or concoct a rappel down the route.


Location 

Well left of Autumn and Rock Wars near the left most end of Long Wall.


Protection 

Mostly medium nuts and TCUs, but take a few other pieces up to a #3 camalot.
