Description 

A locals classic? Clean rock up a featured, but never very positive, less than vertical dihedral. Good, but holds a bit more of a reputation than itís worth in this authorís opinion. I think itís another example of a route that gets easier the more you get it wired so the weathered locals like to call it 5.7 and grin as visitors and newbies struggle to find the moves. Some route finding that makes you think, the rock is good, and itís a nice change from the repetitive hueco pulling throughout the rest of the crag - but thereís much better on the wall. Still well worth doing.

Location 

Far left of the wall, third route from the end. Look for the white dihedral.

Protection 

5 bolts plus anchor.
