Description

Start up the short yet steep black dihedral exiting to the left. Follow the handcrack up and right around the small roof into a low angle corner to the base of the crux roof. Pull the boulder problem around the roof into another lower angle corner with a finger crack to top out. Can exit the dihedral on the left just before the top into another crack to avoid the moss mantle.

The climb is still quite dirty but should clean up really nice so scrub away!

A cool looking variation that is up for grabs would be to exit the first dihedral on the right. Then follow the arete/face above to the roof below the crux of DSD. Traverse right then back up and left through a different roof and finish in the upper dihedral.

Location

Scramble up moss to the left of Garden Party Buttress and head for the short black dihedral.

Protection

Gear to 3" (doubles in .5 - #2 C4, though you could do with less) and slings
(Optional #4 C4 for the crux)
2 Bolt Anchor
