Description 

I think the greatness of this route is hidden beneath all the dirt and dust! Start in the finger seam, then move up to the overhang on finger pockets. Stem through and head straight up the smooth water groove to an awesome crimp rail. Exit via either variation of the Dihedral Route. With mileage and cleaning, I think this could be one of the better routes on The Ridge.

Location 

This is located in the same cove as Dihedral - take the right side instead of the left.

Protection 

Use cracks for a gear anchor - same spot as Dihedral. Could be a run-out lead...tricams and small stuff.

I cleaned a bunch of the pockets and rails out today - seemed like it had gotten worse since I last climbed it. There's a large ledge above the water chute that's feeding dirt to the route. I'll bring something bigger than a nut tool next time. Still very climbable and very fun!

The first twenty feet are really great. Stemming, pockets, a little lieback, pulling around the arete. All fun!
