5 out of 5 stars School's OUT

This is the obvious left faceing dihedral with the flake in the back two cracks to the right (South) of the chimney. It looked harder than it was. The bottom spit me out before I could get any gear in. If you look closely this route has been climbed so much that folks shoes have eroded the opening foot holds into large dishes instead of clean edges. Every 3 moves will give you a solid stance to place gear. Don't let it get to you, just lead it!

I'm always looking for a partner and I live 1 hour from Zion. Shoot me an email and we can climb.

4 out of 5 stars fun

this is actually a great route. hand jams at the beginning with some power moves off the flakes. minimal rope drag.
