  • Description 

    The Dihedral Wall is the second most significant feature/formation at Old Castle. Home to some of the cleaner dihedral, arete, and face climbs. The Dihedral wall is steep and proud but not as relentless as the main wall.

    The Transmigration Corner 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  California : San Diego County : ... : The Dihedral Wall
    The Transmigration Dihedral is probably the second largest and most obvious feature at Old Castle Crag. As you climb you will transcend up the large left facing open book that is visibly seen from the road. This was the very first climb I ever did at this cliff. Originally I always felt it was 5.10 but once you have figured out the sequence and let go, it is only 5.9!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
