Description 

Curving Dihedral is a short but strenuous exercise in laybacking and stemming. Climb into a short slab to reach the namesake feature. Stem and layback up the thin dihedral, exiting right. Climb moderate rock up and right to the summit ridge.


Location 

The route starts off the large ledge above the Sooberb/Long John's bolted rappel anchors. It's a few feet right of the Erickson's Finish roof crack.


Protection 

It protects better than it looks from the ground. A #4 Camalot will protect the opening moves of the dihedral, which takes up to a #1 Camalot. Double-up on small cams, and bring a couple of large pieces for the anchor.
