Description

Capra Diem is on the main pegmatite plate just off the road and on the right. It is a two pitch line that runs through the obvious left facing dihedral in its second pitch. P1 runs up a moderate face to a double bolt belay below and to the right of the large dihedral. By itself this pitch is uninspiring, and can still shed some loose rock. P2 surmounts a steep roof/bulge with several 5.11+ sections and then traverses left to the base of the dihedral. Entry into the dihedral is not simple, and climbing is very continuous 5.11 right to the anchors. It is highly recommended to bring the second up to the top anchor rather than trying to lower back down to the belay. The turns entering the traverse and entering the dihedral could generate horrendous rope drag.

Protection

A dozen draws and a rope. This line is composed of two pitches, however, a single 60 meter rope will just get you to the ground from the top of P2.
