Description [Edit]

This 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":

mountainproject.com/v/avoid…

and photo:

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.

Location [Edit]

The 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.

Protection [Edit]

Singles to #3.
