BETA PHOTO: Upper dihedral with the North Platte River below.

Description 

A nice dihedral with hand to finger jams. The climb is ascetically beautiful with hardly any use, so cleaning out a hold here and there may be necessary. If you want to split the climb in two pitches there are two comfortable ledges to belay from.

Location 

From your parking/camping spot travel 400 meters west until you reach a gully. The climb is on the east side of the gully.

Protection 

Anchors with chains at top allow you to drop in. Top rope out or pull the rope for your lead. Standard rack with nothing larger than a #3.
