BETA PHOTO: Its a dihedral.

No overnight camping on PG&E property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Easy stemming, fingers, hands, layback moves through the dihedral leads to a massive ledge with a tree. Crack goes on 15-20 feet above that on what looks like 5.6 climbing (no bolted anchors). This would be an easy 5.9 trad lead if you're bothering to carry gear. There are plenty of good rests and gear is straightforward.

Alternatively, you can lead Push to Open or Closed for Lunch set up a top rope using the top two bolts on Closed for Lunch as directional pieces. This is a good way to eke out a 5th climb on this wall.

Overall, the climb is still pretty sandy/grainy and could use more traffic. Not nearly as nice as the other climbs on the wall, but its something different.

Location 

Obvious crack in a large dihedral right of Closed for Lunch.

Protection 

Single rack, fingers-hands. Or top rope.

My group did this as a sort of trad clinic on Saturday. It was really fun! I don't see how you would set up a top rope from the next route over, anchors or bolts. It's quite far and would be a good swing. I suppose you could move totally off route going left out of the dihedral before finishing it, but then you're skipping the most interesting part of the route.
