Description

Although a bit obscure, this route climbs the clean, left-facing dihedral three cracks west (left looking over from the South Side) of Tralfamador. Approach from below, or rappel to the light-colored, slabby rock directly below the corner.

Pitch 1: The start of the climb is a bit dicey due to some detached flakes at the start. Cautiously work past the flakes until solid gear is reached in the arching corner above. Some more difficult, but well-protected climbing ascends the short corner to a ledge (alternative belay spot). Continue up the delightful corner above (5.8)- some of the nicest climbing at the Cwm!

Protection

A normal rack of cams and wires. The upper dihedral is mostly hand-sized.
