Description [Suggest Change]
This is the beautiful, large, right-facing dihedral to climber's left of Upside The Cranium. The Hubbel guidebook lists this climb as 5.10a/b. We clipped the first two bolts of UTC to protect the start. The majority of the start and lower portion of the dihedral is 5.8/9 climbing easily protected with small / medium gear. Over the last 25-30 feet, the dihedral arcs dramatically to the right across a steepening face. This makes for a fairly strenuous jamming / stemming / smearing crux rewarded by positive holds at the top of the dihedral to an easy finish. This is a high quality route, well worth doing.

Pro to 4". A #2 Camalot is oh-so-nice for the crux.
