DescriptionOn July 22, 1977, Claire Carren and I climbed the longest, most obvious, clean dihedral on the whole cliff band. On the first pitch, difficult, wide stems lead to an overhang, over which you must reach high for a good jam. Continue jamming and liebacking up the vertical corner to a ledge.
The second pitch climbs ledgy, blocky terrain to the rim. Beware of loose rock. While following, Claire pulled off a block bigger than she was, and she fell. The block hit the ground near our packs. We walked off to the east and down to the south, then northwest along the base to our packs.
