Dihedral

5.5 PG13, Trad, 55 ft (17 m),  Avg: 1.2 from 5 votes
FA: unknown
California > San Francisco B… > Wine Country/No… > Mt St Helena > Silverado Mine

Description

The climb is on the right side of the headwall to the right of Right Corner, ascending a short but obvious dihedral near the top of wall. Start in the mine shaft underneath the dihedral and climb up blocky rocks to a wide, slanting ledge. Climb the well-protected dihedral which ends with a committing but easy move over a small overhang. Belay from either a tree stump or a larger tree trunk.

Location

Short but obvious dihedral about 30 feet right of Right Corner.

Protection

A few small to medium cams. If top-roping, long slings or a short rope are needed for anchoring to a tree or tree stump 15 feet from the edge.
