Description

This is a favorite 1-pitch route. It ascends the obvious right facing dihedral directly above the Eden area pullout. Hike a few feet upslope from the pullout to a nice level belay spot. I would advise the belayer at the base to anchor in since the crux is only a few feet off the deck and a fall could result in both people rolling down slope into their car (or the road) below.

As noted above, the crux is only a little ways off the deck, but high enough to make you think twice about your gear before you pull the moves. Climb up to an overhang. Place some bomber gear and crank over (5.9). Then enjoy stemming, jamming, and liebacking the handcrack that lies above (5.8). Lots of fun! As you belay your partner up, you can watch folks rubber neck at you as they drive by.

Protection

Standard rack - possibly bring some doubles of hand-sized cams. Be sure to save 2-3 runners with biners for the bolted belay at the top. 2 ropes for the rappel.
