Traversing from the Dike Gulley is easy but not very well protected. The crack eats gear. Medium to large cams.

Either climb pitch one of Dike Gulley or access it by climbing Southern Fried Chute or the first 2 pitches of Sea Gypsy. From a belay in the Gulley, traverse over good ledges (although licheny) to a left facing corner. Follow the corner to the top and belay at the tree.

Descent Options:

Move down and right to the Sea Gypsy rappel anchor. Two 95 foot rappels to the ground.

3 out of 5 stars Nice corner!

If this were lower and you didn't have to climb either a gross gulley or heady unprotected climbing to get there, it would see a lot more traffic. Since it is where it is, is is covered in lichen.
