Description

This right-facing dihedral is about 100 feet right of the route Flake. Scramble up onto a flat ledge at the base of the crack.

A slabby start leads to steeper (than you think!) climbing above. The rock quality is sound, with awkward and strenuous moves.

Descent: walk off to the right along the "fin" of rock, then scramble to the ground....

This route is worth doing if you're in the area and looking for something short to finish the day.

Protection

Finger sizes thru a 3.5 Camalot, emphasizing smaller sizes. Long runner to sling flake at mid-height. Finger size pieces for belay or TR anchor.

Fun...lots of face holds but awkward positioning until you reach the upper hand jams. Probably easier than the flake route IMO (mentally).

No visible bolted anchor as of 5/15. Save a long sling a few tiny cams for a creative anchor on a razorback like top. I actually used a slider nut up top. May 25, 2015
