Description

wonderful corner climb. atypical of the area in the fact that it is not very slabby and kicks you back as you surmount the bulge. this would be a very hard onsight lead as the gear to supplement the old pitons is small and tricky. stem the dihedral and try not to let the bulge push you off.

Location

Locate the route tower of teeth. this is just left. it is an obvious dihedral with a thin seam.

Protection

small gear (small nuts, c3 cams) to protect the crux. the seam is thin and shallow. 3 rusty pitons from 1983 haha.

a great route to set up a TR after leading tower of teeth or the guardian face. pg-13 if you're relying on the pitons from the 80s. they're rusted and seized up. Jun 14, 2015
