This climbs the right-most dike on the face to the right of "James Brown". I'm not sure where the actual start is, because there are a few ways to this dike. What seems to be the most direct start is to climb a short corner, with a bush at the base or the blunt arete to the right, then up face passing three horizontal cracks to the base of the dike system. follow this to the top passing one bolt.
Boulders on top can be slung for anchors.


Pro to 2" or 2.5", I don't remember. A couple of the horizontals are about the same size, so you may want to double up from 1"-2". Bring a 30' sling, if you want to set up a TR.

I replaced the bolt with a nice new one in 2007.
The moves up to the bolt are 5.6/7 R.

Super cool dike system up high. Didn't find the route overly run-out and took solid gear. Additional protection of flake/shelf system with .75 camalot and long runner before committing upward progress with nice stance to clip bolt.

The neighboring 'Brown Sugar' has convenience bolts which allows for anchoring and possible rapping if you're doing other routes in the area and willing to leave behind some slings. We utilized a 12' rabbit runner which was extended over the lip to reduce wear. Rock is gritty and sheath wrecker, so TR's are not recommended.
