Description

From the Kennedy Book:
Dihedral System on the northwest face. Climb corner to a large ledge. A second pitch can be done up a rough 5.9 crack.

The climb is good and vertical for the grade, with a nice little bulge at the top that you pull with all the weight on your perfect hand jams.

One of the excellent moderate trad routes in otherwise sport crag. Rock quality of first pitch is fantastic for the area. Don't bother with the second pitch unless you like slogging choss.

Location

Take the trail to the north west side. Formation to the left of headbanger wall when viewing from the main trail or from patina wall.

Protection

I used 2 small nuts, a few BD cams: two 3's, 0.75, a .5, Having a few extra small cams or a whole set of nuts will help you sew it up. Protection is better near the top.

Rappel Chains at the ledge on the right below the lobes. Resist the urge to go straight up the left crack.

This is a great crack route that has really cleaned up over the years. Plenty of rest spots and great protection make this a must do route when you are out there. Feb 12, 2018
