Dihedral climbing up and around a roof to splitter quartzite cracks that run the rest of the way.
Easy to miss. Guidebooks say to belay 3rd pitch from a tree, if you do basic down scrambling is needed and then walk the ledge to the left for rappel chains. 3 sets of chains, 1st rap 80' 2nd 80' 3rd 75'

This is not the dihedral to the left (or to the right) of Steorts Ridge. This route shares the first pitch with Steorts then follows a beautiful 5.6 crack (or set of cracks) all the way to the top of the formation. Pitch two is the highlight of the route. The quality is on par with Steorts, all that's missing is the exposure.
A bit spooky since storms rolled in but other than that very fun. Don't overshoot the rappel ledge, it's also a shame looking up and not heading to the peak. Beware of crap rock if you decide to go higher.
