Description

This route may be overlooked much too often! The dihedral below the overhang protects very well, much better than it appears from the ground. Start by climbing up a green face directly under the dihedral, climb up and right to reach the base of the dihedral. You can get gear here about 15 ft up. Once you reach the dihedral, stem your way up it to reach the overhang. Pull the overhang and use finger locks and small face holds to gain a stance below a short section of hand crack (crux). From here, continue straight up the face on jugs and clean rock to reach the shuts.

Location

This route begins below an overhang with orange rock and a left facing dihedral below it. Start about 20 ft to the left of Remission.

Protection

Stoppers, and mostly small gear. Gear up to a #2 Camalot. Shuts.

Dihedral is awesome but thin; my partner short roped a clip, whereupon I lost my balance and took a pants-soiling tumble. Rock quality above dihedral diminishes. Nov 29, 2015

There are some committing moves above gear on this one, especially moving through the overhang. Gear in the dihedral is bomber, but the quantity and quality of potential placements decreases above the overhang. Nov 27, 2017
