4 out of 5 stars Fingers and Crimps

After you get over the V0/V1 start the dihedral is a fun climb. Start with a left facing lie back, then use the finger width crack to get past the slight over hang. Switch to a right facing lie back and be on the look out for crimps higher on the route. Does not take good gear!!! Recommend that you top rope this guy a few times to get the motions down cause a #2 stopper is about the best your going to get.
