Thin edge pulling and contorted movement on old bolts lead to a good chicken head and a crux boulder problem. This line packs in a bone-hard 12c grade into only 25 feet. The first two/three bolts have older(?) SMC hangers, and are quite corroded. They didn't really inspire confidence, but make your own decisions.


Left of Core Shot at the very left side of the Dihedrals. Climb a black water streak a bit right and then through a line of chicken heads.


4 bolts + two Metolius rap bolts. Take a close look at the bolts before whipping all over them.
