If you like groveling strenuous off width type climbing this will be a favorite.

Off the ground stem, jam, smear, and wedge up a left leaning bomb-bay V groove. Pull out of the groove to a nice ledge, and well deserved rest, then follow an easier corner to quick clips.

Tape could be helpful as the fist jams can be quite painful, Ouch!


Approaching Dicky Ledge from the base The Good Book is about one hundred feet right (Northeast) of South America Flake.


Bring a small selection of large Cams BD #3 to #4 as well as a finger sized piece if you want to sew up the last move. Lower off Quick Clips

There is an alternate start just right that goes at 5.10+ but is seldom dry.

This is soooo much more heinous than it looks (and it looks pretty heinous).
