The climb follows the vertical dike

Always check road conditions and peregrine closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Astrid starts at a vertical gray dike and follows it for it's entire length. The thin start is a crux as well as the section before the bulge. The bolts have a bit of space between them but they're in all the right places and you'll need a couple of pieces for the crack three-fourths up the climb. The Gray dike offers thoroughly ascetic climbing, with great friction, lie-backing and side pulls.

Location 

When heading to Valhalla continue until you're under an oak canopy and you can see a thin flake, The grey dike and a crack in a right-facing corner.

Protection 

Mostly bolts, with a 3" piece and finger sized piece for the crack part way up. 11 or so draws.
two 60m ropes to get down while one 60 will only work if you swing left the whole way down. One 70m Works swell.
