A fun but short mixed trad/ sport climb if you want to place some gear afterwork. Climb a left-facing dihedral via laybacks and then work your way onto the face clipping two drilled pitons before the anchors. Easily protects with a 4 QDs and small to medium gear.


Approach as for Old'n. The climb is the obvious, left-facing dihedral 30 feet to the right.
