Description

This is a good moderate dihedral that eats up gear and is a great option if you are in the area. The route dries quickly compared to other lines at the wall. The orange lichen look sort of like lava flowing out of the rock.

Start off making some easy step ups to get established in the dihedral. Get to a wide section and make some difficult steps (crux). Continue up using the face or dihedral to climb to the anchors, which are shared with No Sleep...

Location

Just past No Sleep Til' Campton at a nice flat area. This is the obvious slabby very featured dihedral with some really cool looking orange lichen on the left face.

Protection

Single rack, nuts, tricams, optional #4 Camalot for the wide section. Two bolt anchor at the top. Rappel with a 60m rope.

Unpleasant start gives way to good moderate climbing. Note this area sees little traffic, I have seen wasps on this route in the same hole about half way up two different years. Sep 7, 2016
