Description

The route ascends a perfect left facing, left leaning dihedral on the left side of Chicago Creek Rock. Get to the base of the rock as for BaDaBing, and then continue along the base of the rock to the left. When possible head up and right on an easy slab to the belay ledge under the obvious corner system. Crimp, smear and layback the corner(crux) to a good rest, then continue up the off-width to a ledge. Rap from here or contunue up easy ground (right) to the top. It is possible to make two pitches by starting up BaDaBing, moving left at the roof, and following a finger crack that cuts diagonally up the face to the left, bringing you to the base of the Super D dihedral. This probably ups the grade to 5.10.

Protection

Small (finger size) cams for the bottom, large fist sized (#3 or 4 Camalot) for the off-width at the top.

Super Dihedral. I cleaned this route with Rob Hawkens for about a half day then lead it clean on gear. I think it is a four star line worthy!!! Do it if you have your rack. Has a two bolt anchor up top after the wide.
Up top I placed a four and 4.5 before the anchor. Sep 2, 2014
