BETA PHOTO: basic topo


25m up canyon from Atomic Gecko and just before the canyon opens up to the Big Horn wall there is a thin desperate crack on the left. Bolts protect bouldery moves through the bottom. a desperate dihedral leads to a stance and final roof crack. bring several pieces for the roof crack. one bolt protects the final crack moves.

The rock quality doesn't start out great and the cheater-stone pile is a bit wobbly but I think this is a very good pitch - it's so different than everything else in the canyon. There's no just reaching through the crux on this one...You gotta tech-stem burl it out! Most will only need 2 or 3 cams in the #.5 - #2 Camalot range for the crack before the last bolt. No gear necessary over the roof. Go do it!!!

I threw myself at this thing without knowing the grade...hard! Alex any beta for coming out of the undercling to get into the dihedral? I was only able once to desperately go right hand to a crimp on the left face of the dihedral, work my feet, use an intermediate mono for the left, and then cross left to the fist "hold" in the crack.
