Description

Start either on a shelf above your belayer at the base of an obvious left-facing corner, or work a couple simple face moves directly below said shelf to add a few unnecessary feet to your climb. Climb in the dihedral with great cracks for pro, then move out to the arete as the dihedral deteriorates. There is no walkoff, so be prepared to rappel.

Location

Head to the right side of the Zulu Wall. A trail leads up some steep terrain to the base of an obvious left-facing dihedral.

Protection

Pro to 2in.
Two bolt anchor with rap rings.

Must do climb (even if its a warmup). Just wish it was longer. Jun 27, 2011
Much more difficult than appearances suggest, and no gimme for the grade. Two nice ASCA ring bolts on top for rappelling. Jul 1, 2013

Great route, good pro. I probably climbed this 10 times in a row when I was learning to place gear. Aug 2, 2013

Is this really 90 ft? I think around 60 is closer, even with the scrambling at the base. Apr 4, 2014
2 Spinners for the anchor with ASCA labels. Didn't have a wrench. May 31, 2015

Fun route with good placements and sustained 5.8 moves. Don't remember any arete feature...seemed more like cracked face direct to anchor top out. Jun 2, 2015
