  • Description 

    Climb right in the main, enormous dihedral of the crag. You can stick right next to the left wall the entire way, or take a variation 2' to the right that can be climbed from the same anchor. The rock is cleaner than it looks.


    A LONG (25") sling to wrap a horn, larger cams (#3-#4 Camalot) size. Lots of slings to reach the edge from the good gear placements.

    Others called this route "dirty" in the past. It is not very dirty right now. I agree with the "off camber" comment though. The crux is near the top but only a few moves in length.

    Some not-so-great gear, to say the least. Not something you'd send a newbie trad leader up on, by any means.
