BETA PHOTO: Catch 22 - climbs the dike-seam to the right of th...


Located to the far climber's left on the upper ledges. The climb is located about 15-20 ft climber's-right of a prominent right-facing inside corner that contains scrub vegitation.

ACCESS: Set up a rap off trees about 25-30 ft to climber's left (viewer's right) of the 3/8" ss bolt above Ringwraith. Rap to a tree ledge directly below; this ledge is to climber's left and about 20 ft above the Half-Way Tree Ledge.
Alternately, from the dbl bolt anchor on the Half-Way Tree ledge, walk about 25 ft left and climb up a low angle slab to the higher tree(s).

P1 - Pad up the slab headed for a dike-like seam [Var 1] about 30-35 ft up a little to the right. Climb the seam, stepping left at the top and up to a flat area. Climb up the ramped, rounded larger-size version of the dike line to the top. [Var 2 ] The last bit is poorly protected. 140 - 120 ft (depending on start) 5.7

Variation 1 - Climb the steep white slab a few feet left of the dike-like seam. Best top-roped. 5.8+ to 5.9-

Variation 2 - Instead of the ramped dike, climb the crack and features on the right. About 5.5

The right-facing inside corner on the left has been climbed in its entirety as "Variation 3", but this would almost seem to be a separate climb. Reported as about 5.4 - 5.5; exit left and up into the trees.
