Rockwork Orange, Mt Woodson, 5.10b Short but sweet at one of the best crack climbing areas around, even if its "just" a top rope.

Endurance Pitch on Astroman, Hans Florine told me all I needed was #3 Camalot and I'd be solid. That Camalot was tipped out halfway up and I just had to thrutch it 40' to the belay... dick.

Colchuck Balanced Rock-West Face has some amazing dihedral climbing, but the main dihedral pitch up under the 30 foot roof has to be one of the best in an amazing setting.
Not My Cross to Bear is memorable

Campanille Basso    (from SummitPost)
Campanille Basso (from SummitPost)



Via Fehrmann on the Campanille Basso (Brenta region, Dolomites). Ten to 14 pitches to the shoulder, a few more to the summit. When we returned to the refugio, the warden of the hut was out chopping wood. The venerable Bruno Detassis, "King of the Brenta", was in his 80s. I told him that we had been on the Basso, or at least shook some gear and said "Fehrmann verschneidung". His eyes lit up and he pantomimed the crux moves perfectly. A wonderful exchange since he didn't speak English, and I didn't speak Italian.

Zanzibar Dihedral, near Independence Pass, was mentioned. So many great dihedrals out there, but that's the popped into my head as well. 50 meters of pure fun on the best rock Aspen has to offer. Thought I should share a pic so you know what I mean.

Another fine trip to Zanzibar.

Bloody Corner, on Mt Russell. The crux pitch is five stars, without a doubt. Great rock, unreal position, a long pitch (ca. 190'), and sustained!

Pitch 3 of 'Thunderkiss' in El Potrero Chico.

There are tons more dihedrals I've done that are harder, longer, bigger, and more impressive. But this one is unique and memorable.

First climb after knee surgery <br />

2nd pitch of Alaskan Highway in Squamish, especially the first 20ft (now does it qualify as a dihedral or more of a v-slot?) I wished I had dragged a camera up there for that one, but a great photo of Sonnie Trotter on it is in the Alpinist, Issue 35.


Paradise Lost at Pardise Forks in Arizona



or Shangri-la in Sedona, Arizona(pitches 1, 4 and 5 are dihedrals and pitch 3 climbs like on)


or choose 20 or 30 of the dihedrals at Indian Creek....

As mentioned before, the Moritorium in Yosemite was also pretty good (another one I didn't drag up a camera for).

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Corrugation Corner at Lover's Leap. It's a classic at the grade.

Where? Wouldn't you like to know. You have to buy me a beer, then I will tell you.

I have to mentioned:
Bunny Slope at the Creek.
1st pitch on Castleton chimney route.
The Cave Route at the Creek.
The Wave at I.C.
Andromida strain at the Red (if a cliff is closed, does the climb still exist?)
Moby Grape at 11 Mile

Already mentioned-
Zanzibar on I.P. is a classic!

3 A.M. Crack in the creek.
Good Stuff

This is a photo I grabbed of Castleton. We had no camera that day.

Word. Did this a few days ago, and just clicked on this thread to add it. It's the best dihedral at the NRG, though I have not yet been on Greatest Show, heh.

Oh yeah and SS Maywood at Vedauwoo! And Spectreman........ And all of the routes Ive ever done on devils tower and the other ones I cant remember

The original route on Rainbow wall. The only dihedral I've "climbed" without actually climbing the dihedral. The route consistently throws you into crazy face climbing scenarios before returning you to the corner.
