Just downstream from the Sandbox. Follow the descent for Sandbox but head to the right (downstream), rather than to the left. There are two dihedrals near the water level. Just a bit downstream from these are another few climbs and another larger dihedral.

Getting There 

From the climber's parking area, hike straight to the river, across the picnic areas to the River Trail. Follow the trail downstream just past where it starts to become rocky. If you reach the plaque, you've reached the Dihedrals and you've gone too far.
