This is a crack route that has been bolted. It protects well with gear -- skip the bolts.

This overhanging dihedral with a crack running through it is much easier than it looks.


The route is itself is easy to find. Just look for the impressive overhanging dihedral on the left side of the wall. However, this route is not easy to approach. I would suggest climbing a short 5.10a pitch (Trash Man) to the left, which takes you to the large, guano-covered ledge and two coldshuts.


Skip the bolts and bring gear. #0.5, #0.75, and #1 cams might require doubles. There are coldshuts at the top.
