Back of Bushwhack Corridor

Description/Location/Protection 

At the back of the Bushwhack Corridor. Climb up two ledges (a #5 helps protect getting over the second one) and then walk back about 15 feet to the base of the chimney on the right.

The chimney and crack are extremely abrasive. Grunt your way about two thirds up and then decide to finish on no gear or transition on delicate moves to the crack on the face. Finish the ungardened crack for about 10 feet. I was cleaning the crack for pro placements and hand jams as I ascended.

Meander through the bushes and trees for another 30 feet to the base of OMG Dihedral.

This is an alternate adventure climb to reach OMGD.

Ascended this route to gain Oh My God Dihedral after missing the turn off higher up.

Not sure what the route is called or rated.
