Description

This is a wonderful dihedral route on the top tier of the Rat Rock slabs. Climb a short ramp to where the thin crack begins and with a few delicate moves you'll reach a rest where the crack begins to widen to the hand sized finish. This route can easily be seen from the dam and can be accessed by either climbing a route on the lower tier (ie: "Rat Ledge") or walking up the ramp between the tiers from the east side of the reservoir.

Protection

Small aliens for the start to 3" for the finish and anchors. The route goes from fingers to hands. There is no fixed anchor, however, you can smear down the slab to use the 2 bolt anchor at the top of "Oasis of Eden" and "The Way it Should Be".

fun dihedral thin crack. some spots along the main crack still a bit gritty, as well as the right side face. a good climb that evidently doesn't see much traffic Nov 6, 2015
