Description

The classic looking dihedral left of Air Head, stem, lieback, a bolt protects the last part, the guidebooks says 5.10a, but more like 5.9-, You can top rope it, off Air Head anchors, clip bolt, but bring some gear and lead it, just wish it was longer.

Location

It is left of Air Head.

Protection

Light rack, nuts, small cams to #2 Camalot, one bolt.

Good climb. If you bring a trad rack jump on this. Definitely easier than 10a, but I would give it a solid 9, if not 9+. Mar 13, 2010

This crack zips up real nice with nuts and cams #0.3-#2.

No need for TCUs or the bolt.

The flake on the arete between Gearhead and Airhead is very loose. Sep 4, 2011

A fall traversing from the bolt to the anchors could be bad as the rope runs along the sharp arete. Happened to me today, and my rope took some sheath damage. I had a piece in after the bolt; maybe it helped. Dec 19, 2015
