  • Description 

    Climb a blocky dihedral to a ledge. Then continue up either on the slab face on your left or using the flake on your right.

    Straightforward and fun.


    One of the first routes off the trail, head left and you'll find it.

    Are you referring to the corner left of the "A-Crack" formation? If so, this is a fun, little outing with a thoughtful offwidth "move" at near the top. A #4 Camalot helps keep you off the ledge if you happen to fall.

    Yeah, I think that's it. I got the name from the old climbing magazine topo.

    The first section is straightfoward at 5.6, easy to protect.

    Once you gain the ledge, the off-width piece might go at 5.8/9, it takes a little bit of gusto but it's a good layback.

    The variation on the right side of the wall would keep it at 5.6 but is not really much fun.

    2 bolts (no rap rings) at the top of the off-width piece.

    The anchor is now a glue-in inline chainset up and right of where the old anchor used to be.
