This is the right-most of the collection of corners on the lower-left portion of Physical Crag.

Starting from the ledge above the low angle slab below, climb up and into a shallow right-facing corner via thin cracks and seams. The crux is finding the inobvious holds required to enter the dihedral. Body-scrumming was a plus, but hurt with no shirt on. Once up in the dihedral, continue up on more moderate climbing and finish to belay at the tree above.

To descend, walk off a ledge to the South towards 'The Veil' and then go down a well-traveled but loose gully.


Lead on strenuous thin pro at the crux or TR it from the tree above, [which] is what I did. So I won't talk much about gear.
