This is the beautiful large right facing dihedral to climbers left of Upside The Cranium. It is possible to clip the first two bolts of UTC to protect the start. The majority of the start and lower portion of the dihedral is 5.8/9 climbing. After the second bolt of UTC it is slightly run out before getting to the start of the dihedral, but from there it soaks up gear. Over the last 20 or so feet the dihedral arcs dramatically to the right across a steepening face. This makes for a fairly strenuous lie backing / stemming / smearing crux rewarded by positive holds at the top of the dihedral to an easy finish. Fun climb. A number two Camalot or equivalent is good to have for the crux.

Hardest trad lead to date, still trying to repoint this thing.... I slipped before the crux on my last attempt and took a pretty good fall on my orange Alien, what a pisser. My buddy Tom lead Fever Dance (thin 5.10c crack to the right) after I took a shot at this last weekend, he almost got the redpoint on it.
