I think I did this route. The dihedral looked way ...

  • Description 

    This is an alright climb that is belayed just to the right of Flash Dihedral. Protect just right above the belay, and traverse right across the slab. There are several protection spots along here if you fear a fall.

    EDIT: there is a better belay spot (read less drag) at the corner mentioned below. It made no real difference with the climb.

    There is a square roof when traversing along the slab. The real climb starts at the corner just to the right and down from that area. Start moving up the corner to a quick crux. Move to the right when you get to the top of the corner to a nice ledge on the far side. Head up the flat wall in front of you to the belay ledge.

    There is a loose flake that looks like a perfect hand hold where two cracks form a cross in the wall.

    Scramble off the top to the walkoff.


    Belay just to the right of Flash Dihedral. The climb starts in the middle of the first buttress.


    Standard rack.
