BETA PHOTO: Three Dihedrals. All climbs start at the base of ...
Dihedral Two starts in the same place as Dihedral One and Common Denominator: at a ledge below a low-angle slab.
Climb the slab and head to the corner just right of the arete on Common Denominator. Battle past bushes to the corner, then battle past more bushes starting up the corner (crux). Follow the corner up and break left at the top to the anchor on Common Denominator. There's a good ledge here so you can bring up your partner. Lowering is also an option; be careful since it is a 100' pitch.
Note: the clean corner just to the right of Dihedral Two is on Dominatrix. It's tempting to go this way, but it's not the route.
Some decent climbing in the upper corner, but the bush battle necessitates a Bomb rating. Pruning shears and herbicide may improve the climbing experience.
Pro to 3"-4". Some wider cracks near the top.
