The top of this route features some small overhangs to climb over using big holds while the bottom offers some face climbing.


"Just before reaching the Delicate Dihedral descent gully is a face with a couple of small overhangs. Walk around and you can get a view of it from the various overlooks, or from the top of Dogleg Crack."
Mike Farris, Rock Climbing Minnesota and Wisconsin, p. 172


There are lots of cracks on top of this route to set up top rope or else sling a couple of big features in the rock.

The guidebook shows this route going straight up the face from the start of this route. That part of the climb seems super thin for 5.9. I ended up having to use the big crack to the right until I could get up the the overhangs above. Anyone know a different way to climb it?
