Description Suggest change

The Dihedral Wall is located directly above Princely Ambitions, Dr. Sniff and the final pitch of Snow White. Years ago the Dihedral Wall was free of obscuring vegetation and the “dihedral” routes were strikingly obvious from the parking lot. Now several trees shade the routes and they seem to have become largely forgotten and most certainly dirty. Too bad as they are excellent routes. Julie’s Roof and Gogum being thin cracks and C&S a stemming problem.

Getting There Suggest change

The Dihedral Wall can be reached via walking from the top of Princely Ambitions, Tadpole or Snow White. It can also be reached by walking over from the top of the Great Northern slab. The trail from GNS takes you directly under the Terminator route. As always take care not to knock anything off as there will most likely be people down below.

The old school descent from the top was to climb up to where it is possible to scramble down to GNS or simply rappel to the base. I believe bolts were added to simplify the descent. They might be old and manky now or they might not exist so plan accordingly.
