Description

This climbs the left facing dihedral just right of The Key Hole. Climb the wide jamcrack,(5.9ish) to a platform and then go up the corner. The crux is geting started off of the platform. Descend by either continuing up easy ground to the top and descend as for the Key Hole or walk off left.

Protection

This one is leadable if someone wants to bring a KB and hammer. Please leave the pin fixed.

The great looking handcrack at the beginning of the route is blocked by a yucca. Otherwise, it looks pretty fun! Wish there was a spot for gear lower down in the dihedral, would be a great lead! I think this is the best route on the wall.

Also, I did not see a fixed pin on this route. Nov 29, 2012
