Description

Begin under the dihedral. The first 25' is unprotected climbing on a less than vertical slab coated with an excellent example of slip fault glazing. A bulge on the upper half of the dihedral and the top gets a little loose but is also easier. Plan on leaving slings to rap down.

Location

This is a wide dihedral on the north side of the wash in beautiful red rock above the Boulder Garden.

Protection

Cams up to 3" and a set of nuts.

Tony Yinger, Tom Ray, and Mark Quinn climbed this in 1987. They thought that they had an FA, but Tony found an old soft iron Cassin piton high in the dihedral that he pulled out with his fingers and old sun-rotted webbing around a rock on top. Jan 7, 2016
