Description 

One of the first eye catching lines as you walk the Rockband is this right facing dihedral. Leaning slightly to the right, it does not look as sweet as it climbs. May feel sandbagged until you've done a couple of laps and gotten it dialed. This thing sucks up nuts.

Location 

The first full dihedral you come to after cresting the approach hill. Gear belay, or extend a looong sling from tree. Rap from 'Dog Days' or walk off climbers right.

Protection 

Standard rack to 2", emphasis on smaller nuts. Offset nuts sing.

I had a hard time believing this was only 10.b. The stances for gear placement are...interesting...challenging. Glad i had 2 sets of DMM offset nuts!
