Description

The Texas Tumble is a far left route at The Dihedrals. In total, it's about 100 feet so it can be done as one pitch with a 60m or 70m rope but because the route switches from crack climbing down low to slabby face climbing up high, it's broken into two pitches.
P1 (5.10+) - Climb up a short bit of smooth slab to a couple bolts before moving left onto a steep face with two parallel cracks protected by five or so bolts between the two cracks. If you're tall, stretch across both cracks. If you're shorter, stick to the right crack most likely. Climb the cracks to an obvious ledge and bolted anchor. This pitch is awesome and is one of my favorites at EPC. You get some slab, jamming, a nice hueco pocket, some lay-backing and some stemming all in one pitch.
P2 (5.9-) - This is the 2nd pitch of Remember The Alamo. Climb the slabby face/arete past six or seven bolts to the chain anchor at the top.
Rappel the route to get down.

Location

This is the left most line in the Dihedrals area starting in a dihedral and moving out onto slab face climbing up high.

Protection

17 bolts per pitch and bolted anchors.
