Description

This is the right facing dihedral immediately right of Brain Cloud and Shadow of a Hangdog. Overall, this is one of the cleanest and most contiguous moderate cracks I have found at Table. The pro is plentiful and there are fun jams.

Walk off - go right or left to the nearest gully.

Protection

Standard rack up to #2 Camalot. This route does not have a bolted belay; but you can use the Shadow of a Hangdog's or Broken Arrow belay bolts (climber's left) with a couple of long slings, or there are some nice cracks at the top to set your own belay.

A fun variation that improves the quality is to climb the first half of "Unknown right of Fat Fingers" to under the bulge. Just before the bolts begin, move right into the corner. This adds a thin 5.9 lieback section (passing a currently fixed #0 TCU) and avoids the lower angle beginning. A good climb, but I think Big Dihedral is better.

Also, its easy to climb back left at the top and use the "Unknown right of Fat Fingers" rappel anchor instead of walking off. Feb 10, 2008
