Description:

Climb the long left hand corner to the left of the large log leaning on the cliff. This route is located around the corner to the left of SLeeping princess and Great Expectations. Very prominent Dihedral is tough to miss. Dihederal starts easy for 1/3 then steepens for the next 1/3. Jam and layback nice crack until angle eases. Crux comes in the thin section where the angle eases off. A great route!

Descent Options:

Rap from Rap hangers at top of route or walk down to the right.

What a great climb, the upper bit was the crux. One of my favourites.

A great climb... nice crack to jam and layback, good pro and an interesting crux high on the route. I backed off twice before because of dirt covering the crux but the route has been scrubbed completely clean.
