Description:

make a long move right to enter the left-facing corner at an overhanging section. pass the 5.6 overhang and follow the flake to belay chains at it's top. pitch2: Traverse right and up to a bolt, then angle up left along a diagonal crack. Where it ends, make a few 5.5 moves upward, then slant up right along another diagonal crack to belay anchors. Pitch3: angle up left to a bolt, then head up right to an obvious, left racing dihedral. Climb the 5.7 dihedral, then belay on a ledge at its top. Rabbel the4 route. For greater challenge, head more directly up from the first bolt on the second pitch, passing 2 more bolts and face climbing of up to 5.10b. Either way take pro to 3".

3 out of 5 stars Bring your #3/4

Otherwise you realize all you have are TCU's and stoppers and running out the last dihedral 40 feet above a rusty bolt. Overall, mellow climb.

3 out of 5 stars Fun little adventure

Runout to the first pro in the corner (watch for small pockets for cams). Second pitch wanders and isn't that exciting, third pitch goes up the cool dihedral up top. It's actually trickier than it looks! Bring some wide pro.
