Description:

4 pitches in a shaded dihedral. Great route for HOT days, as it sees very little sun. For pitch 2 be sure to work left as soon as possible. Depending on how you do it, this can create a (potential) swing for the follower. After that, routefinding is straightforward with a short crux section and fun climbing.

5 out of 5 stars Ascent note

Crux can be protected by small c3 or alien, maybe smallest tricam. We did the 10c traverse down mantle on the 3rd? pitch. There is some 5.9 off-width-maybe 10ft- into weird short chimney section--you might want long pants. Fun route with a little of almost everything!

5 out of 5 stars none

major rope drag on the first pitch. try not to clip the piton in the corner if you feel solid doing the traverse into the chimney/offwidth. the lieback crux is a little tricky but friction is good.

5 out of 5 stars not the hardest .10a ever

the crux is only a couple of moves long and you can protect it at eye level while you do it. similar to crescent arch.
