Description

This route climbs the right dihedral next to the roof route. If you top rope it, watch out for the swing if you slip off the first little overhang. It passes one little overhang, then a second and meanders over to the right up big holds to the top.

Protection

Bring 15' slings for TR. Use smaller stuff to lead. The added two bolts last summer to the top for lowering. You'll need something to clip them.

Fun route. Didn't want to knock it down to an 8/8+, but felt easier than 9. Crux for me was an awkward step-thru to get onto the roof of Roof Route. Assuming I went off-route at that point and this is suppose to finish through the 2nd small roof. Jun 19, 2015
Good climb but the rock and the gear is marginal at best until you get a 0.2 Trango followed by a really bomber #0.4 Camalot. So, make sure you have those two pieces and you will feel much better about yourself. Jul 30, 2010

Another start option is the arete on the immediate left of the classic dihedral start. It's good on TR or a highball boulder problem. Follow the arete to the first overhang. Near the top, make sure to do the second roof rather than go around to the right. Bomber jams! Jun 16, 2008

I agree with Gary. If you're going to set a toprope for this climb might as well do the right side also. Nov 2, 2006

Note: for what it's worth in my guidebook (Front Range topropes), this route is called Corner Climb and the Corner climb route on this site is called Dihedral route. (Maybe an inadvertent swapping of names?) Whatever, it's all good rock. Aug 30, 2004

Following the crack on the right side of the initial overhang is fun too. Found it to be about the same difficulty, maybe couple of 5.9 moves and requires a bit more foot work than hauling over the overhang on the left. Set 3 large cams and a tri-cam under a crack near the top for the anchor. The trees are a long ways away! Aug 30, 2004
Good climb, getting over the first little overhang is easy if you find the right holds. The top is very easy, I would rate it a 5.5. Oct 7, 2003

These bolts were removed sometime this year. This is fun lead, getting in good pro is a little tough due to the type of rock. Bring a few small tricams if you plan to lead it. Save a couple hand size cams for the anchor at the top of the climb. Jul 30, 2001
