Description

Dimetrodon is a so-so climb owing to the coincidence of some flaky rock in places and an overall lack of protection. The coexistence of these two detractors making for an experience that might be best classified as "type 3 fun."

Yet for the completist, now that it has been done, it must be repeated....

Approach as for Thinquisition but uphill of that line. About midway up the base line, large boulders (think cars and garages) lie against the base of the East face of The Fin. Climb a line up the East face from this point to reach and join the South arete of this, as per Thinquisition.

Location

This route ascends the central East Face of The Fin. Approach as for The Fin and Thinquisition, but continue uphill until you reach some huge boulders, then head up the East Face about 40 meters to a notch on the arete.

Protection

There is some occasional gear to be had, it is rumored, but having soloed the route, I can not attest to this.
