Description

Cruxes at the beginning and end of a mostly-hands crack. Pull a small bulge, romp up through easier terrain, then finish in the slightly awkward, leaning dihedral. Surprisingly good. May have some vegetation if not climbed recently.

Location

On the south side of the PO formation. Do a tunnel-through some trimmed back shrubs, and look for a small bulge with a right-leaning crack above.

Protection

Gear to 3", no fixed top anchors. Belay 2nd from top and walk off.

Great route! Crux is definitely the upper dihedral. Careful placing gear behind the flake mid route, it is super sharp and would probably shred ropes/slings. Nov 28, 2015

Neat route. Very cool geometry in the dihedral with a finger crack inside and perpendicular to the hand crack. Anchor with 2-3" Mar 19, 2015
