Description Suggest change

An absolute classic if not for the first 60 feet of questionable climbing. Head left around the corner from the Great Dihedral and look for a beautiful left facing dihedral starting 60 feet off the ground.

P1. After some dubious, although easy climbing on trap rock, a hollow flake guards the dihedral above (flake is no longer here—bolt has been added and is now well protected). Pitch 1 finishes up the dihedral and traverses left to a belay stance and fixed anchor. 5.10a, 110 feet

P2 Traverse back right and tackle the overhanging crack on the right wall. Stemming and an occasional hold in the dihedral keep the climbing at a reasonable grade. 5.10b, 100 feet

Location Suggest change

To the left of the Great Dihedral, look for a left facing dihedral that starts 60 feet up the face. At the time, there was a fixed orange cam in the first pitch dihedral.

Descent: Rap the route with a single 60m. The bottom rap is ~110 feet. I have seen one 60m rope make it down on rope stretch, but with another 60m we had to rap down and to the left where the ground rises higher against the cliff.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack with fixed anchors on top of both pitches.
