"Dipstick" is the left most of the three routes on the huge orange block that sits above the entrance to the Grotto. Start climbing in the pit below the block and climb up tensiony 5.11 moves on sidepulls and underclings to a rest on the horizontal break. After lingering here, punch through the powerful headwall crux.
