Description:

A short but fun dihedral. A good intro to finger and hand jams for the beginner. You'll jam with your right and smear on the left. An interesting twist I guess - definitely worth doing.

4 out of 5 stars grassy

i found this rock ridden with grassy areas and growth. It made the climbing harder but it was still an easy route.

This was my first lead since May 2005. I broke a bone in my foot and was out the majority of the season. I top roped this route the week before and came back to lead it. The West Bench area is a fun place with a lot of different problems to work. The dihedral, while short, was fun and I'd recommend it to someone new to jams.
