Description:

A superb route, which follows the obvious dihedral up the center of the cliff. Start 5m right of Original Route, at the base of an obvious corner. 1. 5.4 Follow the corner to ledges below an overhang. 2. 5.9 Step left and go up the lower section of the dihedral (usually wet, but not too difficult) to a good resting spot below the upper steeper section. Make some hard moves (crux) to get established in the upper dihedral, and follow it up to a good resting ledge. Continue up in the same line (still difficult) to the top.
