A dihedral crack climb with locks, faceholds, and plenty of stemming peppered in for variety. More technical than powerful with some big reaches to surmount sections where the crack pinches down.


The obvious dihedral crack to the left of Hillside Strangler.

This thing is a very clean, sustained fingers corners. Stemming is critical at the top. Very fun. I hope the flake near the top does not become detached.

Colonel, you downgrading son of a bitch... My ego would like to have a word with you. My tick list used to say I recently TR hangdogged my way up a .12a... which is now a lowly .11+

You keep this up, and pretty soon my head is going to start fitting through doorways.
