This climb begins from a right-slanting crack/ledge below The Vanishing and Vanishing Ink. A 3rd-class ramp leads to a belay. The Producers takes a series of left-facing corners just left of the belay. It is between two arete climbs, and shares the top anchor with the left of these climbs.

This route was top-roped by Bob Horan and Steve Morris in 1996 soon after sending the other, surrounding routes. We called the TR; Dihedral Dude, glad to have it bolted by Vino and Morris.

Very cool stemming. You get sucked left onto bigger holds around the fourth bolt, but don't worry about it: The business is still to come. Final clip in the initial corner (7th or 8th bolt) is hidden and delicate, and the fall could be ugly; it'd be better if this bolt were moved about 8 inches lower. But that's just a quibble. This route is really interesting and fun.
