This unfortunate chunk of stone leaves a lot to be desired. Mercifully short, this route climbs marginal rock that is generally covered in dirt and spider webs. However, if you like a challenge and are desparate to climb something on the left side of the road, this is probably better than going to a staff meeting.

Scramble over some pretty loose talus, then a delicate step right to a sloping ledge at the base of the imposing steep left leaning bolted dihedral. A long reach gets you started. Then jam strenuously, laybacking, along with finger locks and stemming help you make your way up the painful dihedral crack. Eventually as the angle lessens the corner ends and the anchor is on your right.

[Both Monomaniac and LeeAB deserve credit for this route description, as each of their individual contributions were combined]


The first route left of the obvious XXX face, this is a bolted, steep, left-leaning dihedral.

When we did this route, 10+ was scrawled in chalk at the base so that is what I went with for the grade. Feb 18, 2009

Lee, I think this is the same as Monomaniac's entry for Banzai. Unless there is another dihedral with a super chossy start in the area. Sounds like you had a slightly better experience then he or I did for the 2 star rating, maybe it is starting to clean up. Feb 19, 2009

Whoops, yes it is the same. We need to find out the name. Lance might know...or not. Feb 19, 2009

I would understand if the person who bolted this isn't interested in taking "credit" for it. I've got a few "contributions" of my own that will remain forever anonymous :) Sometimes projects just don't work out the way you hope they will. Feb 19, 2009

Nice route. I thought it was fairly clean and worthy of one's time. Jun 18, 2009

A fitting description for a sketchy climb with a couple loose bolts near the top, but there are a few fun moves. Aug 3, 2010
