Description

Not as good as the other Dihedral in the Narrows, but still a fun and unique climb. The Dihedral climbs the tiered dihedral system to the right of Great Expectations. Climb up the initial dihedral with good protection and positive holds. At the top, step right and head back into the low angled chimney formed by the face and the second dihedral. There is a slightly flared crack that splits the roof of the chimney. You can place a couple of marginal cams in the crack, otherwise the protection is not great (but the climbing is easy). Once you reach the top of the chimney, climb to the anchors at the top of Great Expectations and rappel with two ropes.

Protection

Standard rack (TCUs helpful). Shares anchors with Great Expectations.
