This dihedral starts right off the deck with some pretty interesting and thin moves, easing up as the route progresses. At the horizontal, if desired, place a small cam for that "Extra" security. Walk off toward Keys Ranch. It does involve a few fun moves...can be downclimbed via ramp with some fifth class friction moves...not recommended for beginners...


2 bolts. Horizontal crack inbetween the two bolts will take a small cam. No anchors on top... Medium pro in Horizontal at top of route. Medium Tri-Cams work great!

If this thing were longer than fifteen feet of pretty cool moves it would get more than one star IMO... It could just as easily be done as a boulder problem, as the top section is not that interesting...again just my opinion...

I'll be honest, I thought this climb more like .11-. Allows for some nice stemming.
