An aesthetic plate of rock.

Description 

This route climbs the dihedral and arete on the left side of the green face at the top of the Tick Rock approach gully.

Begin below the left edge of the face, climb to the large quartz crystals then step right into the dihedral. Follow the dihedral and arete to the anchors. Either lower from there or scramble 15 feet to the anchors at the top of the first pitch of PTSD and finish with its second pitch.

The rock is somewhat flaky, and as of this writing, there is only one bolt at the anchor.

Location 

The green face at the top of the Tick Rock approach gully. This is immediately right and around the corner from PTSD.

Protection 

Small to medium nuts and cams. One three inch and one four inch piece. Three bolts.
