Description

This is a great trad lead. Immediately to the left of Crawling up Roseanne's Belly, (two climbs to the left of Bimbo in Limbo) is a great prominent crack which is a bit harder than it looks. A variation starts to the right, 5.9- (directly under Roseanne's Belly.)

From David House, this dihedral is just left of the Crawling Up Roseanne's Belly arete, about 50' right of the prominent Stella buttress. Apparently there are two alternative starts, we started on the right. In either case the real prize is the upper dihedral. A beautiful crack eats medium cams and a few 5.8 stemming and/or lieback moves will get you to the anchors with hooks on top of Roseanne. An underated route on the quality scale in the guidebooks, this is the nicest crack/trad route of its grade I've done at Table. An excellent route for aspiring trad leaders. (It is route #177 in Hubbel's guide, #14 in Rolofson's guide.)

Eds. the description was combined to consolidate the database.

Protection

Cams to 3 inches and wires. Lower off from the two bolt anchor with Mussy hooks on Roseanne's. The route now has its own hooks. You don’t need to use Roseanne's.
