Top of the curving dihedral. Feb 2016.

Description 

This route begins from a flat area atop a large rock, above and to the right of the main slabby face where Cling Peaches and The Unbearable Lightness Of Being are located.

Up the very obvious left-facing dihedral which starts off the left side of the ledge. The rock is a nice chocolate brown and is impeccable in quality. A fun easy climb.

Descend by scrambling around to the right.

Protection 

Medium to 3 inches.

I liked this route and would recommend it to anyone who had just finished "WOTWS" - makes for a slightly longer day but worth the effort - just head up and across.
