BETA PHOTO: Petrophyte goes right up the dihedral. Fun route.

Closed March 15 through June 30 MORE INFO >>>


This route ascends the right facing dihedral to the right of "Event Horizon." The crux is getting to the first placement. As you climb this you will find that there are great stances every time that you feel that you need to place gear. It's great!

(There was chalk all over this crack so if you know who climbed it first or the original name please let me know and I'll make the appropriate changes.)


Right of "Event Horizon"

Rap off chains or rap hangers.


Camalots up to #1
Use anchor bolts on either side of the dihedral.
