30 mins. Follow a trail up to the Bellygood Ledge descent trail, and then on to the Backside trail.

I'm terrible at dihedral climbing, I got mangled on that 10d dihedral pitch. I thought I was gonna shit when it got wide towards the top haha. nice exposure on the last couple pitches!

5 out of 5 stars great route

stellar climbing in the lower corner system, great exposure in cracks after the chimney. the 11b slab at the bottom is pretty soft, and the 10d corner pitch is a massive sandbag! although on of the best pitches in Squamish(in my opinion)
