An unsuspectingly fun climb. Would be a lot better if it got more traffic to wear down some of the mosses on the route and clean the loose rocks.

Start under the bottom of the obvious large dihedral that occupies the middle of this route. Sling your gear while in the main dihedral to reduce rope drag near the top. Trend up and right out of the dihedral to the right of a very small roof for a balancey, airy finish. Gear/sling large rocks for the belay. Walk off right.


Farthest right side of south face of Blackline Buttress. Locate the obvious and large right trending dihedral above you. Walk off right.


This climb protects well the entire way. Bring a standard rack up to a Camalot #3.
