Description:

The most obvious route on the face. The BIG right facing dihedral left of the water stains on the face. Scramble up some chossy rock past some hard moves to a cramped belay under the big roof. Struggle up into the increduble corner and jam/stem up this for over 100 feet past a tree to a nice belay ledge. Move right to a broken slab, go up, and then back left above your partner to a nice slab leading to the top. No moves harder than 5.9 on the route.

5 out of 5 stars Puzzling and Positive

Figuring out how to get started in the P2 dihedral is reason enough to do this line. The corner itself is continuous, challenging climbing. Tree at base of off-width section is no longer there.

5 out of 5 stars excellent

getting out of the slot is hard. Much harder than 9+ for me. the gear is small, but there. The rest of the climb 5.8 or easier.
