DescriptionThis is a tiny pitch of fairly nice granite up and left of the main face of Jericho. It certainly catches your eye as you climb on the Triangles or look up and left from lower Jericho. It looks a bit loose from a distance, but a mild cleaning gave up a bit of nice climbing. Mike Endicott suggested the line but was unable to be there for our first go.
On FA, we rapped in to avoid harming the rope with rock cleaning. We approached fairly similarly as for the main part of Jericho but aimed for a flattish, cap-like boulder above this corner. You can also traverse carefully from the top of Jericho on a grassy but exposed ledge.
We belayed off to the side with a #4 Camlot (old size) to the left, but small cams can work. Pulling up into the dihedral tempts one to step on the jutting flake on the right, but that'll go, so you can use a foothold just below to be safe. A short climber may find the start reachy. Continue up the dihedral and look left for pro. At times, the right wall will lure you. Near the top, the crux seems to involve trusting or not trusting a feldspar-rich hold (I didn't).
Beware of the cactus up and right on the topout ledge.
