Description

Arguably the best route at Minne, Dihedral is often TR'd, but is an excellent lead. You'll lieback, jam, stem, crimp and smear up this one. The Crux is at mid-height, after moving left from a good rest in the corner. sustained from this point. Many consider it hard for the grade.

Location

Look for the obvious left facing corner in the middle of the main wall (facing Upriver Dr.) Easy walk off

Protection

set of stoppers and cams to 2". 2 bolt anchor on top. bring webbing if you want to toprope.

The two bolts on top are just regular hangers so you won't be able to rappel or lower. So if you lead this thing, plan on having a follower clean your gear and then walk off.

Great climb though, diverse movement and ample but thoughtful pro make for a good time. Aug 31, 2015

Sustained, varied climbing up a beautiful feature. One of the best climbs of its grade around Spokane (at least that I know of). It protected very easily. I did not feel that the "greasiness" of the start detracted from the climb at all. Jul 30, 2015
Continuously protectable. Holds are pretty greasy from countless TR's. Felt like a couple 10- moves in there. Mar 10, 2012
Good gear if you want to lead it. Its a stiff 5.9 and be prepared to mess a bit with your gear, the crux is really well protected though. Single rack and maybe a blue tri-cam. Jun 20, 2011
