Description

Climb the intimidating looking, overhanging dihedral on big holds with the crux at the 4th bolt. Easy climbing leads left to a slabby finish. An alternate finish at a similar grade (First Planet) can be found by climbing to the right to finish on Planet Earth. This is quite good.

Location

Begin 20 feet right of Heaven & Earth at a left-facing dihedral.

Protection

8 bolts to 2 Fixe rings.

If you use the Earth First anchors (2 Fixe rings), there is no rope shredding problem. The Planet Earth anchors could cause a problem, but there you are on a big ledge. Jul 18, 2015
Lowering a climber can shred the rope. A lot of sharp rock lies below the anchors. After reaching the anchor, the climber should rappel. Jul 17, 2015

There is a wasp nest just right of the 5th bolt. Those sensitive, beware! Jul 15, 2015

Echoing other comments, the belay area here is VERY dangerous. It's steep, there are few solid rocks to stand on, and many of the loose rocks are large and could easily cause a rockslide if dislodged. Catching a lead fall here is potentially hazardous to everyone standing downhill. Jul 13, 2015

The trail and area for belayer to stand suck here (loose). Be careful. May 29, 2015

We did not find any loose rock today. We did the First Planet finish, and I think it is easier than the other finish (which I did in the past). Nov 9, 2014

Be careful belaying. There is a section of bad rock on the rap/lower line (not the climb itself). I spotted & trundled a basketball+ size rock, and there is more junk breaking off. Oct 27, 2014
