This is a fun, short climb at the start with much easier climbing at the top.


It is just to the right from Diagonal Dihedral.


You need trad gear, I toproped from the pine tree at the top.

Definitely a worthwhile little crack, a good moderate lead to sharpen your skills in placing gear in an underclinging stance. I used two BD #3s and one BD #0.75 for "the arch." The rest of the climb is super dusty with tons of loose rock with hardy any gear placement (except for slinging a tree). There's a two bolt anchor at the top. Overall it was pretty fun. Recommended.
