Description

It doesn't really look like a route, it's so short. Follow the dihedral up, occasionally using the opposite face to stem out. There's a fair amount of lichen on the route - it must not be climbed often.

Location

This is the farthest right dihedral on the main section of the rock.

Protection

Some medium length slings.

The route is likely the dihedral to the left of the rope.  Where the rope is there is a fun crack.

[Hide Comment] I liked the moves on this climb, fun stemming and cool moves, would get three stars if it was 50 feet longer. Nov 14, 2005

[Hide Comment] I thought I did this climb based on the Mark Rolofson topo, but I may have climbed a short crack even further right. I did not have a dihedral for stemming, but the rating felt about right. Aug 27, 2014
