Description 

A few layback moves up the crack and then some chunky moves to the anchors. An excellent climb for the beginning leader - way more fun than it looks.

Location 

The big crack in the dihedral to the left of "way left" - shares the same anchors as the two routes to the right.

Protection 

Big stuff for the lead. Tons of gear placements.

Known as "Heck's Arete" in the Ryan Hansen guidebook. Climbs the arete to the left of "Kevin's Dihedral".

Sorry, this is actually "Kevin's Dihedral" per the description. "Heck's Arete" is to the left of this.

All big gear, hexs and #4 C4 and up. Set an anchor on the ledge just below the top (directly above the chains on the sport route is a good spot) to belay the second. You can then walk off to the north very easily.
