DescriptionThe dihedral that is the main feature of this route provides really fun, delicate climbing in a setting that is sheltered from the wind, making this a fun backup plan when the wind feels a little too strong to make something more adventurous fun.
Head up the gully to the chossy cliff band below tower. Follow a weakness on the left side of the chossy cliffband, and wander right on the snowy ledge to below the prominent and delightful dihedral.
Climb the dihedral with fun stemming and some great turf climbing. Towards the top, the dihedral steepens and one can escape left on steep, juggy terrain to a ledge. From here, follow the path of least resistance to the top of the tower.
