Description 

This route starts in the back of the cave. Stem your way up the overhanging dihedral, clutching sweet flakes. Gear placements are obvious, although not conventional. Runners will be helpful. At the roof, step right and jam out the clean crack; don't be sucked out left by the jugs (no gear). Once on the face, send the slab past old hanger bolts to a small ledge. Belay up second here or walk off.

There used to be bolts from a route called Watch Your Step, graded 11a. BDM is the trad version of the same route, and was originally graded 10d. The latest book gives it 10c, which is more accurate.

Location 

Back of the mini-cave, the obvious dihedral crack
