Description

This dihedral is worth doing if in the area.

Up onto the left side of Space Mountain sloping ledge, then steeply up the dihedral, getting established in the wide section is probably the crux as the left wall is devoid of holds, follow the wide crack up and then it it starts to get less steep.

Location

Left of Space Mountain. Descent is using the Saddle Rock rappel anchors to the left above I Smell a Rat.

Protection

Small/medium, plus big cam(s) for that wide section.

Pretty safe Route if you feel confident placing gear on a face crack. Honestly don't let the rating scare you away. Plenty of great feet and hands just avoid going into the crack too deep. Feb 17, 2015

Yea, kinda insecure laybaking in the crux and a touch runout to the next gear. Worth doing for sure but be confident at the grade. May 5, 2012
