Description

This has to be one of the finest face climbs on the NW Slabs - sustained and spicy, with great climbing throughout. The first bolt is a wee-bit high, but that's what makes it exciting. After clipping the first bolt, get down to the biz and enjoy excellent thin face moves - the NC3 Guide describes "howling face climbing" - a very accurate description. Climb past the second bolt to the obvious little roof with a crack to undercling. I was able to plug some pretty decent gear here - small TCUs. Bust some final committing moves over the bulge to gain the 5.8R slab above.

Descent? Figure it out.

Location

There are two bolted routes left of Yellow Dihedral - this is the one on the right.

Protection

2 bolts - TCUs.
