Description 

Located on the main wall in the prominent left-facing dihedral, this route is a feel-good climb with the lay-back finger crack (a good amount of these holds are slopers). Save some energy because the crux section is at the top, after you traverse right out of the dihedral, you're high-stepping on crimpers to reach the anchor.
