Nice looking dihedral.


Obvious dihedral in RR hallway.


Trad, big stuff.

Awkward, even for offwidth, due to it being a big blunt flake. Much harder than 5.7, definitely not a "good intro to trad climbing" except in the sense that the gear is 'plug & play' since it's an offwidth.

Takes big gear (#3-#5). You can get a vertical .75 piece at the very top for your exhausted topout. You can build a tree anchor way up on the second shelf, next to the trail.

Somehow I always forget to bring a longsleeve shirt and get ripped to shreds every time. Type II fun! Sep 18, 2017
Now am I trippin, because I found this route quite difficult. It doesn't make sense for a route full of gear is cams #4 and higher, right? This route can be considered an off-width, so I don't see how an off-width can be considered a 5.7 "introduction to trad-climbing."

Now, I'm not trying to start a fight or patronize others, I am just sharing my experience with the route to offer as many viewpoints as possible. Be safe and climb on guys! Jun 15, 2017

Great crack to climb if your new to trad. Averaging slightly bigger than fists all the way up. Feet placements to make you feel secure. Jul 23, 2016

Just climbed No Name Dihedral yesterday. I placed two #3, two #4, a #5 BD Camalot and wish I had another #4 (I ended up back cleaning one when I ran out of pieces near the top). There are tons off opportunities to place these throughout the climb. There are a couple of trees at the top to build a nice anchor off of for TR. The inside of the crack was pretty wet and muddy when I climbed it, so it wasn't great, but I would try it again if I find it dry at some point. Jan 31, 2016
