Description

Climb a large, overhanging dihedral to fun face.

P1. 5.10b/c. Stem up the height-dependent, overhanging dihedral, then head up the face stepping right between the sixth and seventh bolts then back left (straight up is mid .11) to chain anchors.

From the anchors, a 70m rope will barely reach the ground below the ramp.

Location

Scramble up the ramp from the lower left side of the crag to a large, overhanging, right-facing dihedral.

Protection

Seven bolts.

Really fun route! The dihedral start is the highlight in my opinion.

Note: this route shares the chains with Rising Sun (5.9+). Both routes can be easily done with a 60m rope if you rap/lower to the lower (left) end of the ramp - we had several meters to spare. However, if you decide to lower straight down to below the ramp (not sure why you would), it would indeed require a 70m rope. Apr 4, 2016
