This thing is closer to 100' long. A 60m rope works just fine. Pretty hard for 10+ too. May 13, 2013

I cleaned up the direct start of Ultimate Dihedral, and Casey Niggemyer got the likely FA of this variation this weekend (see picture)! This should become the standard route, avoiding the mossy slab with half driven pins.

Beta: Boulder up the overhanging left-facing corner to a jug. A pair of micro-cams (purple/grey metolius or equivalent) and #0.5 C4 a bit higher will protect the moves establishing in the pod and join the rest of the Ultimate right-facing dihedral. The overall grade still remains at consistent 11-. May 13, 2013

5.10 b? I've got some swamp land to sell U. Was on it today. 5.11- for solid leaders (bottom mossy slab, move above third piton + sustained climbing). JMHI. What a great route and area! Apr 25, 2009
That is correct, Tim and Stan. 1983 or '84
