Description Suggest change

My favorite climb in the lower canyon: an immaculate route with good gear on generally great rock. The top gets a little looser and requires thought.

Climb up and left of anchor (read location) and pull a small roof. Follow a great crack, traversing right when it seams out, then up to a small ledge, past difficult technique-intensive climbing, then onward to a large ledge with a bolted anchor. 

NOTE: TIE KNOTS IN YOUR ROPE. A 70m rope would BARELY reach. I mean... BARELY. Lowering from the chains could result in having to downclimb a few feet to the anchor. Better to belay from the top then rap down as you will have only 2 meters of extra rope when you get back to the anchor. Even better, use an 80.

Location Suggest change

This is the second pitch of Asphalt Dihedral. Climb Asphalt, then do an easy mantle above the chains. 5.6 climbing, protected by a #3 or #4 gets you up and left to the obvious chains on the large ledge.
