Description 

Start by climbing up the face about 6 feet to the left from directly under the dihedral using a few small but positive holds. Grab the base of the dihedral and layback for a move or two until it ends at a small overhang. Find a crimp above the overhang, make a reach to a positive hold up and right to gain a stance at the 3rd bolt. From here, move up and set up on a pair of crimps. Dyno to the positive horizontal ledge (crux). Clip the 4th bolt and it's smooth sailing to the shuts. Also, this route stays completely dry in the worst of rain, even when other routes at the Cirque may be wet at the top.


Location 

This short route is located around the middle of the Cirque as you head upstream from the ladders. Locate a left facing dihedral that begins about 10 feet off the ground. The first bolt is located on the bottom edge of the short dihedral.


Protection 

5 bolts, shuts.

The first 3 bolts were just replaced with new half inch stainless ones.
