A good climb that involves a few face moves at the bottom and then gets easier near the top. Be aware of a possibility of a slight swing if sharing the anchors with the route to the right.


This route climbs the friction face just left of Dihedral route (5.7) Easily toproped by sharing the same bolt anchors, which seem to be on the only fixed anchors on the ridge at the present time.

This now has 2 quality bolts at the top. The crack at the top is easier than the 5.8 at the bottom but is just as fun.
