BETA PHOTO: 1) Footloose, 5.11a. 2) Dihedral variation, 5.5. 3...


A good route with some hard pulls at the bottom followed by a nice slab. The second roof has a tough mantle then chickenheads to the top. A little loose rock at the start but bullet-proof after that.

P1. 5.11a. Clip the first bolt with a long sling, then power through the height dependent crux overhang. Continue up the slab to the second overhang, clip another bolt, grab a jug and mantle onto the slab above. Chickenheads lead to the chains.


1) 5.5. After the crux overhang, follow the crack in the right-facing dihedral then step left onto the lip of the overhang and up to the anchors.
2) 5.8. After the crux overhang, the nice slab right of the dihedral has been toproped.


See the topo and photo.


Ten bolts and some long slings.

Use small to medium cams and nuts for the dihedral variation.
