Description 

To start up the featureless slab, use shallow jams and layback until you can reach bigger holds and clip the first bolt. Cruise through a few moves on big holds and horizontals, until you have to make a delicate sidestep, and finally pull off a tiny but positive feature to get up into the dihedral. A final precarious move places you at the anchors. There isn't much of a stance here...


Location 

Head up into the dark alley above the monobridge. This route is the last route on the right before you reach the corner containing Long Dihedral.


Protection 

5 bolts + 2-bolt anchor

I was originally told this was a 5.9. After climbing it, I thought solid 5.10. The new book says .11a. It's somewhere in the ballpark of those three numbers.
