Description 

Sunset Dihedral has a great first pitch follwed by a one of the worst pitches on Lumpy. Lucky for us its pretty easy to walk/rap off after the p.1.

This is the right most route on the Citadel. Climb up 3rd, 4th and 5th class cracks and ledges the base of this great 1st pitch. Jam and stem your way up the crack and if only doing p.1, escape out right and walk and rap back down to your packs. If looking to hate the route and maybe the word, continue upwards. The face traverse left on the start of p.2 is actually really good, but the pitch gets worse and worse eventually ending in a vertical pile of lichen with loose rock and bad pro. Not recommended.

If climbing one of the other routes on the Citadel, p.1 of Sunset Dihedral is a worth while, quality pitch.

Standard Lumpy rack.
