Description

The East Dihedrals route is probably the most obvious line on the Dead Snag when looking from a distance. This route starts just a small ways left of Steort's. The anchors for the top of pitches 1 & 2 are both gear anchors.

P1) This pitch climbs the deep right facing dihedral just left of Steort's. Wander up through an easy opening to a bulge move to start the main dihedral. Pull through this cool move, then up the dihedral. When this feature dies out, wander up easy climbing heading a little left to a good ledge/pod below a steep hand crack.

P2) Climb up this hand crack, through another small bulge, then cruise up an easy right facing dihedral until a belay ledge. Another gear anchor.

P3) Take your choice of 5.easy routes to the chain anchors on a big ledge. This pitch is short. Maybe could be combined with P2 with a 60m rope?

Descent) Rap 3 times, using fixed chain anchors. All raps require only one rope and are on good ledges.
