The nice dihedral Chicken Gumbo for Your Dumbo. A...

Description 

This climb is the major deep dihedral closest to the parking area. Climb up the obvious dihedral to the top. The climbing is quite good, but awkward because the right face of the dihedral always seems to be in the way!

Set up a gear anchor, then the base can be reached by a walk off to the right.

Short but fun climb, nice for the beginner trad leader

Seemed like a good beginning trad lead. Some people with me complained that it was awkward working between the corner and the arete - I didn't feel it too be bad. Good opportunity to use medium size hexes or large nuts. The most powerful part of this climb is the start which is a bouldery power or finesse move - can be easily protected with the overhead slot (I put a medium hex into it).

No anchor at the top. I slung a rock with a long cord (a runner won't be large enough for what I used). Other chose to just do a braced belay.
