Description 

Wedding Day lies one arete East of Chain Reaction and the corner that contains Moonshine Dihedral. It climbs up the right side of the arete on a solid pocketed and edge-covered face. The main crux comes at the very bottom, although there are some tricky moves towards the top as well.


Protection 

7 bolts and a bolted anchor.

I thought this was going to be a no-brainer warm-up, and found myself alert the moment I left the ground.

About 1/2 between a smith slab route and a smith face climb.

As usual getting started is tricky and the rest of the climb is fun but still has some business.

This route is pretty hard right off the ground, and it seemed pretty technical right below the last bolt. Quite popular though because it is the only bolted 5.10 in the Dihedrals.

Great climb, and tricky for short stature. This route needs some serious brushing/washing. Very greasy.

I am not sure why, but this seemed at least as hard as some of the 10c or 11a climbs in the park (perhaps the erosion, broken holds and gunk?). However, after leading it twice I think a 10b/c rating is true - but expect the start to feel more like 11a. Also, if you are not accustom to climbing aretes, then it might feel more difficult than 10b.
