Description

This fun trad line starts at the base of a blocky dihedral, and then turns into a good fingers crack, and goes under a decent sized roof, and out along the left edge, and then up around the left side of the roof to chain anchors on the top. Getting on top of the roof can be a little spicy, as your last cam is under the roof, so a fall would long, but clean. You could also place a .75 cam into the slot before making the move if you wanted to. There are a few crux moves in a couple locations, but nothing too difficult.

Location

obvious cleaned dihedral with a good sized roof capping it.

Protection

Standard rack to 1" down low, and 2-3 small finger size cams for the top half.

I was halfway up this route, poking around in a 1" crack for a good placement, when a big fluffy rat jumped out of my handhold and scurried between my legs. Also, there are some loose blocks in the corner system so watch where you place gear. Fun and pretty easy route though. Mar 13, 2018
