4 out of 5 stars A different start.

We did the first two pitches of Lost in the sun, then did a short rappel and traverse to the start of roped climbing on Red Dihedral, cleaning about 500 pounds of loose rock in the process. i'd recommend this variation. It gives two more solid pitches of climbing, and I'd guess such a traverse is possible from higher on Lost in the Sun.
I found the corner on Red Dihedral very sustained for the grade, and the cruxes pretty easy. One could probably use 10 red sized aliens for the whole thing. A nice pitch or two high, and a lot of scrambling. Note: To get to the Vibes Rap with the slings, one must traverse through a stomach turning bottomless chimney. Just do the chimney. It is fun and easy.

4 out of 5 stars red dihedral

this was our warm up for the hulk and positive vibes and it was super fun. best pitch i thought was the 5.10 splitter on the upper pitches.

5 out of 5 stars the warm up?

spectacular climb. i didn't think the crux pitch had one move harder than 5.9....but it just never lets up, and with the altitude and cold....I got pumped and fell near the top. this was supposed to be a warm up for positive vibes.

5 out of 5 stars What an alpine climb !

Huge face, great feeling once in the face. It was very cold for us, strong wind. We kept a fleece, wind jacket and a hat all day long... but what a day !!!
