Description:

right-most tall route at the Dihedrals. This is the corner/roof/crack system and it is justifiably popular. The crux is a mandatory fist jam halfway up. Best on the lead, for sure! Exposed moves turning the overhang.

4 out of 5 stars Sick Lead

I did this on TR last fall when it was a bit wet and it was good, but not as fun as I expected. I managed to not get kicked out today and got it on trad and it was a spectacular climb. Some tricky gear if you don't have a good selection of larger pro (up to 3 inches). The first crux being the hand crack was superb and a bit odd getting up to the ledge. The mental crux was definitely coming around the roof. Didn't get it clean so I took a rest and then went for it again. Great exposure pulling those moves. Trains make it a bit hard to communicate, but that's part of the thrill.

4 out of 5 stars One of the best

It looks cool and it's even more fun to climb. Not too hard, but takes some awkward moves when it's wet, which it was when I climbed it. I can't wait to lead it when it's dry.

good line, fun crux, but at least you can rest after it if you want. the last 15 feet are the best though.
