Description

The Dihedral - 5.9- *** 110' G
A classic line up the first huge dihedral you come to along the Main Canyon trail (just above the jumble of huge boulders on the canyon floor). Climb the corner and face to the left to belay at the large boulder on top. Be careful of possible loose rock in the upper corner.

Take the grading with a grain of salt, as it has been called everything from a 5.7 to a hard 5.9... so, I split the difference with the rating here.

Location

The obvious corner about a third of the way down the Main canyon (directly across from the McLaughlin Canyon interpretive sign on the road). Head right to the base of the corner just before the cluster of huge boulders (about 5 minutes walk for the parking turn out). Walk off along the terrace to the north or continue up the face above...

Protection

Wide range of gear needed. Since it was first climbed long ago it's obvious it can be done without cams, but a full range of them will probably help the modern climber considerably.
