Description

Climb the shallow dihedral 5 feet left of Sin-Wave with technical stemming. Up, slightly left, then back right and over a bulge (crux), then left and up an easier thin crack to the top.

Escaping leftwards out of the dihedral and up is a bit easier.

Protection

TR [or lead with gear including small wires and rps]

I led this route yesterday(12/18/09). It is a pretty serious lead and I would give it a protection rating of R. There are a couple of places where you do not want to fall (you might slam into the boulder at the base of the corner) and one of them happens to be the crux. The gear mostly consists of small wires and some suspect rps behind chock stones in a seam. I wonder if this was the FA? It is hard for me to believe that nobody has led this before, since it seems such a classic line. However my partner who has climbed in Los Alamos for 3 decades seemed to think it was. Dec 19, 2009
