Description

Dead Man Walking is the route that makes the walk to the Dihedrals worth it but only if you enjoy bolt-protected, great crack climbing in a nice corner. It's a beautiful line following a pair of good cracks up a long dihedral.
Start out on lower angle but polished rock following the bolted cracks through a couple of bulges before making a few positive face moves left out of the dihedral to the anchors. There isn't one real crux move, it's just sustained crack and corner climbing the whole way.

Location

Dead Man Walking is near the center of The Dihedrals area. It's the obvious, long bolted dihedral just right of a super clean bolted face open project. Note the length of the route--you will need a 70m rope or two 60m ropes to get down.

Protection

16 bolts to chain anchor on a sloping ledge at the top.
