June Bride is a distinctive, smaller-than-tips splitter down low, that turns into a fingers flare up high. It is left-leaning for a ways but goes right again at the top through slightly better (but not much) jams to a notch and the topout. Step across a wide crack, and head up a brief grainy slab to a good, horizontal crack, and belay. Walk right about 50 feet to the top of the chimney the route starts in and downclimb (5.2ish) back to the belay. Alternately, bring 2 or 3 #4 Big Bros, and belay from the wide crack behind the topout.

This route does not lend itself well to toproping (the upper flared crack leans quite a ways away from the lay of the rope, leading to big pendulums and a forced sequence to deal with the pull of the rope) but can be toproped from the same horizontal crack. Pack a few hand/fist sized pieces and some nuts (I used a BD #3, #3.5, and a #8 stopper), as well as very long slings, if you elect to toprope.


About 150 yards right of Plumb Line, look for a series of dihedrals. This is the middle one, with a distinctive splitter crack running up an ever-so-slightly slabby wall. The dihedral itself is home to a flaring chimney that provides easy access to the top. The route starts from a chockstone wedged in the base of the crack.


Small nuts (especially stoppers 2-4), as well as cams to 1.5"

I did not redpoint the route, or even complete it on lead. However, I toproped it with an eye for leading. It's small nuts down low, and small cams up high. Lots of yellow Alien-sized placements. It can feel a little spicy right off the deck, since the crux is right off the deck, and it's a lot more face climbing than crack climbing until you hit the flare, about a third of the way up. Pictures are forthcoming, Jason.
