DescriptionThis is the right-facing dihedral at the Side Areas at area 1. A clean finger and hand crack crack offers good jams up the ramp to the chains. This route's first pitch and the other dihedral are good warmups for getting used to the sandstone in the area.
Pitch one goes at ~5.8+.
P2: per ??: The second pitch goes free at about 11+/12-.
ProtectionStandard rack with an extra #1 and 1.5 Friend. Also a #4 Friend. 50m rope to lower off fixed anchor.
For P2 per ??: The thin sections protect reasonably well with micro stoppers (Metolius offsets are quite useful). A single set of Camalots #0.1-2, a single set of offset micro stoppers, and a couple extra hand size pieces will suffice for protection (for free climbing it).
