Description

Approach: Take the left branch in the approach as though going to The Horse, The Tower, et cetera. After about 20 feet, go right on an obvious trail as though going up to The Clipboard. After 50 feet or so, go left around the corner on a ledge and arrive at a pleasant platform beneath the Three Dihedrals, maybe 50 feet short of Curvilinear.

Belay on a great ledge and climb a low-angle slab to a small ledge about 40 feet up (could belay here). Climb a 2-inch crack that angles up to the right and gain a stance at the base of a nice arete. Follow bolts up the arete and face just left of the arete to a 2-bolt anchor with rings at 100 feet. 5 bolts plus gear. Lower off.

Protection

This route has 5 bolts, but requires gear from 1 inch to 3 inches in two or three places. Hint: don't bring a big rack; this isn't El Cap. It is also possible to belay on a good ledge about 40 feet up, which will require a few more pieces in the 1 to 3 inch range.
