Description 

The route is pretty dirty with a few over grown plants making it difficult to get over to it on the ledge and making it a little more difficult to climb. The best part of the route is about half way up when you pull yourself around the corner with the potential for an awesome heel hook.

Location 

On the right side of the wall starting in the dihedrial

Protection 

3 bolts.

Fun route...get over the ledge, walk across to the face belpw dihedral and climb up to dihedral. I used the crack and the crack has teeth. It hurts...So if you plan on using the crack, tape up. My partners did not use the crack and did just fine. There is potential for a high heel hook when you move out under the roof to get over bulge, I just traversed the bulge on high feet, then pulled over.

If you like bushwhacking and climbing then this route is for you. If you don't like wasting your time when there is more routes of the same grade (or a more fun route directly to the left) then avoid.
