From the massive dihedral, walk right around the corner to a crack on the right wall of a left facing dihedral with a large pod at the bottom. Climb onto the ledge, and then into the pod to a #3 camalot sized crack.


Double cams from .5 camalot to #3 camalot, with 6 or so #3 camalots

If you have big hands the crux is the start, but after the pod it's dreamy

I thought getting into the pod was a bit tricky. After that fight the pump.

Wish I had brought another green camalot as getting into the pod was a bit exiting. After that it is all fun.
