DescriptionThis routes leads up through the obvious, right-facing dihedral 3/4 up the rock on the left side, but it is spiked with awesome climbing along the way. There are some old 1/4" bolts along this route but no viable bolted belays.
P1. We started at a black streak 50 feet left of the prow of the rock, up a blocky start, did some gardening, and climbed an awesome hand traverse left over to a bunch of slings.
P2. Go straight up and tend leftward over to a ledge with old bolts and a bolt ladder up a face. Enjoy some awesome friction, and crush straight up the bolt line and pull a lip. Go 10 more feet and you've reached the base of the dihedral.
P3. Blast up this beautiful dihedral to the top, or a take an intermediate rest at a great belay ledge above it.
P4. This is for if you did not skip the optional belay ledge.
This route has awesome climbing on every pitch - it is not to be missed!
