A straightened out and much improved version of Righteous Dump. The old line was so wandering it really detracted from what is otherwise a nice route. It started on Fister, traversed under MATH, went up the nice dihedral, and then at the big roof traversed even further right to the Giardia anchor.

In 2015, I added 2 bolt direct start, put an anchor 15' above the roof capping the nice dihedral, and cleaned some loose blocks off the line.

Start just left of Giardia Crack, 2 bolts (5.10+) and then a run out but very easy romp (5.7) to the base of the obvious right facing dihedral. The dihedral is standard fun 5.10 Waterfallness. When you get to the roof instead of bailing out right as for the original line, buck up and claw your way up and over(5.11+). The gear is excellent to the roof and then there's a bomber small cam placement immediately above it, after which you make an exciting run for the anchor with nothing but air below your feet.


Double or triple rack of small stuff to #.75 C4. Singles of #1-3 C4.
Save a small piece or 2 for the roof. A couple draws/slings also.

I talked to Jason Keith about renaming this route since it's no longer a dump, which he was fine with, but after thinking about it some people might still want to do the original finish (I can't imagine why anyone would ever do the original start now) which keeps the whole adventure at 10+, so perhaps it should be kept as 2 separate routes.
