Natasha at the top of TDB.
The Dirty Boulevard starts in the route Dihedral
, and after 20 feet shifts leftward to an arête, passes through a small roof, and finishes on a sharp arête below the chains. While TDB was named for an old Lou Reed tune, it was very dirty when first run on TR. I would concur with Leo that the initial dihedral had seen little or no action prior to their ascent. In fact, much of the dihedral itself was still choked with vegetation that was removed and the corner brushed. But for the opening 20 feet, every effort was made to keep TDB fully independent of Dihedral
. Nonetheless, they do share the opening moves. The rock quality on TDB is largely excellent and well featured throughout.
Start in the route "Dihedral
", left of the main dihedral containing the route "Freeway
". The chains for the TDB rap are 25 feet left of the top rope chains used for the route "Freeway
Nine quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
BETA PHOTO: The route mostly follows the rope.

I left two draws on the top anchor, because we had to bail while my GF was still on the climb. We got soaked by a thundershower on the 4th of July! I plan on getting them, please keep them up there until I return!
Sweet, long climb. Good quality 5.8, it goes the distance.
