An awkward route that has a way of suckering you into thinking it is way easier than the grade implies.

This route is positively unique for Sundown--It ascends a blocky dike that overhangs and leans ever-so-gently to the left. The first 20 feet are mellow, then the sucker-punch comes right after the 2nd bolt. It mellows out a bit after the crux.

Dikenstein is a "good" warm-up for the harder sport routes to the right of it (Yellow Matter Custard, 13a; and Romper Room, 12a).


At the far left end of the cliff, at the height of the approach trail to cliff.


4 bolts and a fixed anchor.
