The Dirty Boulevard starts in the route Dihedral
, and after 20 feet shifts leftward to an arÍte, passes through a small roof, and finishes on a sharp arÍte below the chains. While TDB was named for an old Lou Reed tune, it was very dirty when first run on TR. I would concur with Leo that the initial dihedral had seen little or no action prior to their ascent. In fact, much of the dihedral itself was still choked with vegetation that was removed and the corner brushed. But for the opening 20 feet, every effort was made to keep TDB fully independent of Dihedral
. Nonetheless, they do share the opening moves. The rock quality on TDB is largely excellent and well featured throughout.
Start in the route "Dihedral
", left of the main dihedral containing the route "Freeway
". The chains for the TDB rap are 25 feet left of the top rope chains used for the route "Freeway
Nine quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

I enjoyed this route a lot. It had a bit of everything. I would be careful of the large rock about 3/4 of the way up just before the roof. It seems to only be held there by a small rock. Other than that, I love this area.
