About 20 - 30 feet to the right (south) of Next Time, Send a Card, route goes up the wide dihedral. Take a 2.5" - 3.5" cams to protect moving into the base of the main dihedral. A good cam placement makes this route very well protected.

4 out of 5 stars 11ish feel

Lower slab feels no harder than 5.9 moves. This applys to any move below the main dihedral roof, for at this point, the route turns into a different beast.
To pull the main roof, most climbers head out left, following the horizontal crack, then attack the upper dihedrel. I suggest using the undercling on the roof, a high step with the left foot, to gain the main horizontal edge on the face of this upper dihedral. The left hand moves off the undercling and works up a thin crack until standing upright while pressing on the upper roof. Step high and right with the right foot while converting the upper roof edge into a series of underclings and pinches. Reach far right to next obvious hold (hatchet) to gain the top hold (ax head). Now clip to rap anchors.
