Description 

This is the left facing dihedral below and to the left of Eagle Brand. About a hundred feet to the left of eagle brand. There is a large hollow flake that blocks protection for a bit and there is really no good pro for ten or so feet before this flake, making part of the route quite runout with possible groundfall potential, but the climbing is pretty easy there. Other than that the pro is excellent. This is an excellent rout to do to head up to Eagle Brand. Different than most Vedauwoo climbs, this has a bit of an alpine feel to it.

Protection 

Standard rack, emphasis on fingers/big fingers sizes. Bolts up top.

The only beta addition I would make is don't necessarily leave your small cams in the car as I found yesterday. There are many placements for smaller gear down low. This great little number offers a lot of alternatives for pro and makes a good training piece for such.
