Climb the thin dihedral crack using laybacks, stemming, jamming, or anything that works. Great route on great rock. Prone to wetness in the spring.


Near the right end of Area B, this is the thin dihedral crack where 2 black walls come together.


Gear to 3". 2 bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

For gear take thin stuff, mostly stoppers.

Mostly thin stuff, but one larger cam for the top. It has been 10 years since I have been on it, but I think a gold Camalot does the trick.

Great climb and a must do if you find it dry.
