DescriptionThis line ascends the obvious, gigantic right-facing (south-facing) dihedral on the far right side of the Mezzanines/South Buttress. It's base roughly coincides with the 4th/5th class descent option (see description for "Avoiding the Issue":
As the dihedral is so large, it climbs less like a dihedral and more like a large gully with slabs and a few steeper sections in between. The large crack system in the true corner can also be climbed as an occasional offwidth (harder). In general, following the weaknesses yields a line of about 5.6.
The upper roofs can be circumvented by following the weaknesses on the left.
LocationThe farthest right line on the cliff. From the top of the approach ridge, 4th class up and right to the base of the huge corner system.
