Description 

This is the wide overhanging dihedral starting right of the classic beginner line "Eureka." The topout is accomplished by scrambling up a dirty slope to a tree you can rap off, or you can clip the chains a little lower. This could be a high quality line given more traffic.

Protection 

The crack is heavily varied but takes good gear. Don't need anything larger than a 4.

Location 

After climbing the rebar ladder, head left around the corner and down under a large rock pile.
