The slightly overhanging dihedral is what gives this route it's punch. Getting there will get your attention too. Can be done as a single pitch if you unclip the first bolt off the ledge after clipping the next bolt. Beta makes it easier as does being 6 feet tall but still think it is 12-.


Starts to the right of a chimney that leads up to the big roof half way up the cliff and roughly in the middle of the wall.

Though I've never done it, I can tell by the FA date it's probably more like 12b :-)
