At the bottom of the dihedral work diagonally to the right up to a small tree, which is about a rope length. Belay from the tree. Then head diagonally to the left so that you're above the dihedral (Ingraham's Dihedral) to your left. Protection is quite good for about half the lead and then quite disappears for the next 80 feet or so, which is fairly interesting. This lead winds up near the head of the Dihedral at a small pocket (a little smaller than basketball sized) which is filled with quartz crystals - very pretty. Belay stance protection isn't terribly hot - perhaps should put in a bolt since the first time required jamming a hammer in edgewise, tying in and hoping for the best. The next lead angles off to the right to another small tree, and then scampers to the top.
