|Middle God's Area-Left
A short "pitch" to belay at the base of the main corner, then up sweet laybacking butterscotch all the way to the top. Five star pitch.
This is the easiest to find climb near the Reflector Oven; that doesn't make the approach any easier, but I guarantee it's worth it.
Cams from fingers to largest, you'll be pumped and appreciating the big guys at the top.

Anchors up top. Classic pitch on beautiful granite. The middle of the route can be jammed for a good 20 feet or so to ease the pump factor.

If youv'e ever looked over at this crack from Strawberry Fields you will know why its called "Oh My God!" Dihedral. Super climbing!
On the East of the descent gully at about the same elevation as Strawberry Fields.

To reach the top, scramble down from the Ridge Trail slab facing south. To get to the base of the route, descend Bushwhack Trail and stay left. You can't miss it.

Best to approach this climb from above so you don't have to haul or carry your pack. I don,t know of a fixed anchor, but its been 10 years since the last time I climbed this route, but I used to rig a gear anchor and rap to the base of the corner. Rack up from .5 camalot to #4. A #1 camalot works well for the exit move after the desperate wideness. One of the best climbs on Earth. Well worth the hike. Do Strawberry, Bushwack, and this climb for a stellar day you won't forget. FYI this climb gets sun in the afternoon so save it for the end of the day during the winter.

Great great line. The key for me was hand-jamming and stemming my feet out wide for almost the entire line - you'd have to be outrageously strong to layback from start to finish.
I used singles from .75 to #5, doubles of #3. Was very glad to have the #5 up at the top.
Slinging the small trees/putting in a cam for a bottom anchor is a good idea.
