DescriptionThe Dihedrals is an south/south-easterly facing crag uphill from The Spires just beyond the Outrage Wall that offers many great bolted crack lines (along with a couple of gear protected lines too) on really nice rock. The dark limestone is smoother and more heavily cracked than the rock at other areas. Most of the lines are 100+ feet making for some long one-pitch lines or shorter two-pitch lines.
Getting ThereAfter walking into EPC, pass through the gate beyond the pavilion where there is often a guy stationed in his camper truck charging climbers 10 pesos or 1 USD to pass through. The legality of this fee is questionable but it's not expensive so... Continue on the road for a short distance and head right uphill on one of the trails for the Spires/Outrage Wall. The Blue Dot trail on the north side of the spires or the Pink Dot trail on the south side of the spires will both get you to The Dihedrals area. Take either trail to a solid trail uphill of the spires and keep going uphill on loose trail over a small rise and back down a bit to the dihedrals. The dark corners of the dihedrals will be obvious. This takes about 20-30 minutes from the pavilion in EPC.
