BETA PHOTO: Layback and Tom's Dilemma.


Dilemma is located in the center of the crag, about five feet right of a pronounced corner (Layback, 5.6). Climb the crack to a point where it widens slightly about half way up and just below a short, left-facing corner. The crux is passing this wider section and gaining the dihedral above. Look for some great holds on the face to the left. Climb the dihedral to the top and anchor using the trees. Walk off left and follow the gully back to the base of the wall. This is a fun route that is more difficult than it looks.


Light rack, up to medium-sized gear.

Very hard for 5.5, closer to 5.7 to me.
