Dihedral Route


Starts in the same dihedral on the right side of the Amphitheatre as Single Handed Sailor. Climb the dihedral to the bottom of a roof. Then move right on a huge horizontal. Move around the corner and finish up the same face as Psyco-Metric


Standard Rack with some slings.

This route was recently fully bolted. 5 bolts + anchors if memory serves me right.

You'll want 7 or 8 draws, the route goes up the left face of the dihedral until the roof, then you move slightly left and up for a couple more bolts until you hit the anchors. ~90ft. Really glad this got bolted, the thought of doing the lower section on gear is awful, lots of deceptively loose rock.

Don't really understand why this route was bolted, climbed it today and didn't clip any of the bolts and felt very secure. Its a great trad line and the gear is fine. I'll agree some of the rock is kind of questionable especially once you traverse onto face under the roof, however, it's on easy terrain.

EDIT: I guess the bolted line actually climbs up the face to the right.
