Description:

This route is to the right of morning sunshine it is a large dihedral and can be started on morning sunshine and then a large step across the dihedral to a great foot hold (helps to be tall) the other option is to start at the bottom of the dihedral however the first decent hand hold is about eleven feet up and the foot holds are upside down. these foot "holds" look like someone had actually cut square blocks of stone out under them like an upside down staircase.

Descent Options:

rap or lower

4 out of 5 stars double espresso?

I tried to get started with the second option for over an hour and all I got out of it was a skinned knee. As a new climber I would say that it is not climbable using the second option, however I have been wrong before. The first option is easy if you have some hight or long legs.
