LocationThis climb starts in the large and prominent Right facing dihedral about 20 feet Left of "The Chimney".
DescriptionStart at the bottom of a large right facing dihedral and move up following thin seam/cracks in corner. In some years, there is a bit of ice around the 6th/7th bolt. Past this, where the left wall of the dihedral goes away you have two options: move left to an awkward stance, then climb up and directly right to the anchors -or- go straight up on broken mungy ledges to anchor. The former is a little more insecure but little bit easier than the latter.
Protection9 Quickdraws for bolts. Its quite safe but I have heard some complaints so if enough people comment on wanting more bolts Ill consider pulling them all and re-bolting it.
HistoryThis route has been climbed in the summer as a scary 5.10 trad route, original protected with "a hammer and a bucket of borrowed pitons". Today however, it is excellent in it's current state as an exercise in torqueing and delicate footwork. No bucket needed
