Description 

Start by climbing up a crack system on the left and after about 10 feet traverse right to gain a stance on a grassy ledge. From here, head up and left to begin climbing the crack in the dihedral. The start of this section has great feet, but they get much smaller as you stem your way up, aiming for a hand jam (crux). Once you reach the hand jam, you can climb straight up a bit of an offwidth section or step right to a right facing corner and head directly up toward the anchors.

Location 

This route is located in the first orange dihedral downstream from the Star Trek Wall.

Protection 

Standard rack. Gear to #2 Camalot. Bolted anchor at top.
