Access Issue: Located on USAF Academy Details

Description

This is a fun route navigating a dihedral to a thin crack and finally face climbing with solid jugs to a stellar top out. The first crux is most definitely getting established in the dihedral (be sure you're solid at the grade because the protection before getting established is unreliable at best), with a second through the thin crack.

Location

About 30 feet to the right of Form 34 starts a cluster of harder routes.

Protection

There is little to no gear until established in the dihedral. After that, make sure you get a solid 1.5 placement before moving up to the thinner crack. There is a bolted anchor (without rap rings) at the top for a TR.
