To the 5.12 climber this climb is the start to the super classic Giant Man (5.12a/b), but to the average everyday climber it is a great 5.7 all its own, following a cool feature in a nice setting...
Follow the dike up the less than vertical rock past 8 bolts to an anchor at the base of the super imposing roof... Lower from here...
The climbing is fun and interesting and not hard or scary for the grade so it might be a good choice as a first lead if you are just getting in to it...
As you approach the hinterlands head up and to the right in to a gully... There are climbs on pretty much all the walls in there... This one is one of the first ones on the left as you hike in... Look for the nice dike on the slab below the huge roof...

"Cold feet dike I climbed in the summer of 1980 and Tom Bowker belayed. Finding no protection I down climbed it. Then we bushwhacked down to the boulder field. Didn't consider it then to be a climbed route but it was the first ascent and probably the only descent."
