Inching into the dihedral. Nate Erickson. June 201...

Description 

This is a great route with decent protection and a lot of fun moves.The Route starts on the Northeast Corner below the 2 close together bolts. Climb up through the 2 bolts to the bulge and move up and right to some more fixed gear. Climb up past some more bolts / pins to the bottom of the overhang. Place some good gear with longer slings below the overhang. Move right and up arounf the overhang and into the little dihedral where you can place some more gear. Climb on up to the top. There are various opportunities for clean gear along the route which you should take advantage of.One rope rappel will bring you to the base of the route.

Protection 

Mixed fixed and clean pro.

Tripping over bolts on the way up is not trad.

Just bring draws for this one, I dares ya. I'm scrambling for that # 4 Microstopper by the time I get to the lip. "Sporty" indeed.
