Dave shows off his flexibility on How 'bout It?

Description 

This is a fun climb with good pro. The first half is steep face past two bolts to a finger crack. Continue past a ledge to a steep grainy face with four bolts, tricky getting started.

This route is shown on Russ' Limp Wristed beta photo on the right side labeled "Gerbie/Borne Face Route".

Location 

This route is on the right (north) end of the east face of Dihedral Rock, just right of Couldn't Wait and sports two easy to spot bolts leading to a thin crack. Afternoon shade. Descend by easy scrambling off the back.

Protection 

6 nice bolts and a light rack of cams TCU's to 3". Gear belay takes 2"-3" on the back at your feet which is a little weird...
