Description

Start up a vertical crack and easy friction (1st pitch of The Snake) to a nice belay ledge. 75ft.(5.4). Cruise up unprotected 5.8 face climbing to the base of the obvious towering left facing corner. Stem up the dihedral with good protection to it's top.

Location

This is the jutting left facing dihedral about 100 ft. off the ground just left of the Psychosis layback corner.

Protection

First pitch of The Snake has a few places for gear if you choose to set any. The Dihedral takes small tcu's at the start which protects the crux till you can get in bigger cams above. Bolted anchors on top (same as Psychosis)

This is an excellent route that doesn't seem to be getting much traffic. There is some lichen on either side of the crack in the dihedral, but it doesn't affect the climbing. The 5.8 start takes sporadic gear (most of which is poor), but the dihedral is well protected although the gear can be strenuous to place in the first 15 feet. This section is stout and RPs are useful in order to preserve handholds. Jul 23, 2017
