Arguably the best route at Minne, Dihedral is often TR'd, but is an excellent lead. You'll lieback, jam, stem, crimp and smear up this one. The Crux is at mid-height, after moving left from a good rest in the corner. sustained from this point. Many consider it hard for the grade.
Look for the obvious left facing corner in the middle of the main wall (facing Upriver Dr.) Easy walk off
set of stoppers and cams to 2". 2 bolt anchor on top. bring webbing if you want to toprope.
The Dihedral, 5.9+

It appears they didn't cut it out, someone just took the hanger. I will take a hanger to replace it next time I go.

Good gear if you want to lead it. Its a stiff 5.9 and be prepared to mess a bit with your gear, the crux is really well protected though. Single rack and maybe a blue tri-cam.

Continuously protectable. Holds are pretty greasy from countless TR's. Felt like a couple 10- moves in there.

The bottom of this route has been polished from years of climbers, I would have loved to climb this route when it was first established.
