A few moves over some chossy stuff get you to the base of the dihedral. Follow it up and right to a ledge. It is very fun and protects well. Go left from the ledge and aim for a bolt. The climbing finishes with face moves. If you plan on setting up a TR, bring some long slings to run over the top of the spire from the anchors on Crack Down. Rap down these anchors as well.


Starts in a diagonal dihedral just around the left corner of the front of the crag. It is pretty obvious.


cams to #3 camalot, a few quickdraws It was nice to have a second #2 camalot.
