Looking down on the mid portion of The Pretzel.

Description 

Start in the challenging steep (almost overhanging) start of this dihedral. Once above bulge the angle lessens and the climb becomes easier. You'll find lots of little wedged chockstones right where you need them to get you up this climb.
