DescriptionThere are a number of ways to start this, I went up on the right up under the roof and then out left into the dihedral (kinda sucked). You can slab your way up if your good at that sort of thing (probably not 5.7), and there is also another thin, flared crack that runs up the slab just left (maybe harder then 5.7 also). That option cuts off a fair chunk of the dihedral.
I cruised up the dihedral until it got really thin and vegetated at a nice ledge/ramp system at which point I went left up a widish crack to the little tree. That cut the last 10-20 feet of the dihedral short but seemed better than messing up my ankle in the middle of nowhere trying to clean plants out of the crack and pray for gear since I lost my RPs. We rapped off the tree, and since we had 2 ropes we rigged to pull the webbing when we were on the ground. So, don't expect any webbing or a formal anchor for that matter for all I know. Although I didn't go all the way to the notch to see if walking off the back is possible, but I doubt it would be.
