Jason Haas on the F.A. of the 'B.F.E. Dihedral' (5...
This route is located on the West face and follows a left-leaning crack to a large white roof, then to the top of the formation. Start at a small dihedral and climb to a ledge about 15 ft. up. From here, follow the finger crack up more ledges as it tends towards the left, leading to the white roof. Pass the roof to the left and start heading up for the top of the wall.
This route deserves 1/2 a star. It had some good movement on it, but it was also discontinuous with all the ledges and a little lichen.
To descend, downclimb the ridge for about 50 ft. to locate the notch forming between the East slab and the North face. This is the top of 1/2 Man, 1/2 Beast. Rap from slings around a chockstone to the ground ([35m]).

Some fun movement, but broken up too much and with some dirt and loose rock. Not a bomb, but not worth the hike unless you are here for another route, in which case, go for it.
