  • Description 

    This beautiful, splitter dihedral crack is located just left of Fluorescent Gray, near the bottom of the East Ridge, above the gap and the top of Fiddlehead. In the summer, it stays in the shade till around noon.

    The long, clean, right-facing dihedral is steeper than it looks and includes some really cool climbing. It has lots of wild, reachy moves to jugs, laybacks, and general fun! It protects well and there are plenty of nice stem rests along the way. The crux is near the top of the corner as the dihedral curves up left to an arete. From the arete, head up and left along cracks to the tree above.

    Rappel down from slings around the tree.


    Standard rack including cams up to a #3 Camalot. Extra medium-sized nuts are nice too.

    Lovely, well-protected climbing, and a gimme at the guidebook grade.

    Take several smaller nuts with you and use them at the crux up top. The rock may not hold the really small stuff, so pro it up.

    I was happy to have a blue and black Alien (or similar size) for the top.
