BETA PHOTO: Dihedrals area
|The land is owned by the LDS Church; please be respectful of this. MORE INFO >>>|
This climb starts from the anchors of Half-a-Finger. First do Half-a-Finger, or I think maybe this ledge is reachable from the top of the Five Fingers buttress (?).
The pitch climbs a short hand crack in a right facing dihedral to a huge ledge. Then a few delicate moves up a very thin finger crack/seam in a dihedral lead to a roof. Hand traverse right along the roof and then up a groove/crack to the anchors atop Satan's Corner.
One 60m rope can rap here down to a ledge at the start of Lisa's Shoulder. This climb is kind of ricey, it doesn't look like it is done very often. Worth climbing once.
Single set of cams from red alien up to #3 camalot. Stoppers. Chain anchors shared with Satan's Corner.

Hornet's Rest is the crack system above all the other dihedral routes in the beta photo. It climbs up the right facing dihedral seen in the picture, then traverses the roof (shaded) rightward.

Why not climb 2 great pitches instead of one?

I thought this route was fantastic. Very clean, not "ricey" as reported. Crux after crux after crux with great stances for gear. We had a #4 camalot that was key for the traverse. A #5 would have been a little easier to deal with, but is not esential. And yes, you can get to it w/out climbing half-a-finger, but why?

Rock quality is good, and the climbing is varied and consistent at the grade. Great route that had me grinning for a while after! There is only one place that will take your #4, so dig deep...

Pretty cool little route! I didn't have a #4 and don't feel I needed one. A #2.5 friend(#2 camalot) protected the start and a #3 camalot protected the end. Either way, this is a worthy route for sure.

Make sure to bring some micros and a purple tcu as the gear placements are small for the first 20 feet after the hand crack. The roof looks hard as it is quite wide, but some shuffle underclinging will get you past it without too much stress. I did place a #4 camalot but not absolutely necessary. Another good moderate route at the dihedrals.
