30 feet right of Wild Things.
Stick clip first two bolts, as the first 10-12 moves compose a hard boulder poem that leaves no room for clipping nor tea. TECHNERFUL (Technical AND Powerful)
A unique and thrilling traverse section, tricky clip and dihedral prayer will show you to an enjoyable and victorious second-half of rock climbing.

Previously, this line of rock was known as The Niche, a 12b top rope that started on Wild Things and traversed 30ish feet into a 5.12 face/arete/dihedral. In early spring of 2013, a more direct and difficult start was identified and bolted. This, along with the removal of two very large, loose and dangerous blocks from the dihedral, transformed the line into a much different and difficult sport route.

The Niche was first climbed, on top rope, by Mike Dahlberg circa 1988.
