Description

Exciting and fun climb just right of New Diversions. The route follows steep and smallish chickenheads for quite a while before merging with New D near the top of it's second pitch. Very interesting and delicate climbing in spots. Seemed very sustained and perhaps hard for the grade.

Location

Starts in the gully just right of New D, following the very steep face/arete up and left. Rap from the top of the 2nd pitch of New Dimensions or head up one easy short pitch to the top and a walk off left.

Protection

The gear is mostly slung chickenheads, and some times these are thin and potentially friable. Best not to take any big falls and/or consider use of screamers if climbing at your limit. I recall some wired nuts and perhaps other small gear, but the chickenheads were key.
