Description 

The Dihedrals Area portion of the Gate Buttress has many fine climbs, most being dihedrals! Nearly all the routes are 5.9 or harder, except for Satan's Corner (5.8). For the most part, the climbs are single pitch with not much fixed gear.


Getting There 

Park at the pull-outs 1 1/4 miles up the canyon. This is the same spot as used for the Schoolroom area. Find a climber's trail just west of the parking which cruises past the popular Gate Boulder. Follow the trail through switchbacks more or less straight up to the obvious dihedrals. Some scrambling is required before getting to the base of the climbs.

Black and White John and Mary 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Dihedrals Area
The dihedral just right of Half-a-Finger, is Black and White John and Mary. The start is typically wet and is a rarely climbed 5.11 variation. Otherwise start left of the dihedral on a flake, and work into the dihedral above the moisture. Continue on up the dihedral with pumpy lie-backs, and fun stems.There is a direct finish to Black and White which was added by Doug Heinrich sometime around 2002. Its about 11b, but the gear is there. The original finish (5.10) cut...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
