One of the best climbs in Josh at this grade. Climbs the obvious razor-cut dihedral up the center of Dihedral Rock. Heady start (have a spotter) to killer stemming to an amazing, improbable finish that will have you either screaming or whipping. This climb will force you to trust your small pro. Not to be missed!

3 out of 5 stars Direct start

Direct start was very hard, dihedral was very hard, upper crux was hard. I found this to be very technical, not overy burly. Bring your finest footwork.

5 out of 5 stars Obvious Classic!

I remember driving into j-tree the first time 5 yrs ago and looking around saying "where's the good rock?" then we passed this corner and i was thinking this looked good. 5 yrs later and a bit of sampling of routes around the park and i get on this and its the best route ive done here. maybe im a sucker for corners and good quality climbs with amazing juggy finishes. this thing is sick. Ive climbed all over the country and this definately felt like an 11b like the guide book says. just sayin.
