Jump on this route when it's dry. Good friction throughout.
P1- 5.10a PG13 Start from a bolted anchor on ledge and climb up to base of C-Tips to place your first pro. Continue traversing right with some gear [small nuts or large RP's useful] to a stance slightly above a bolt. Clip bolt and down climb [crux] below it. Make a series of long thin face moves to another stance [good gear once there] or down climb more [easier] to a second bolt [DON'T CLIP 2nd BOLT] traverse and climb up to stance. Make your way to the bolted rap station.
P2- 5.9+ G/5.7 R Climb the obvious crack to a pair of bolts then climb to a second pair of bolts. Move over the 2nd pair and climb easier with scarce pro to ledge.
One 50m rap or two 30m.
There are 2 or 3 more pitches above but I didn't do them.
The ledge 20m right of The Great Dihedral. Same start as C-Tips.
.5" to 1.25" or Green Alien to Green X4 and some small nuts.
Doubles in .75" - 1." Yellow to Red Alien
Plus a #3 blue C4. A 2 works but 3 is better.
All anchors are bolted
