Directions:  Find the deepest V-dihedral in the Recess.
Description: So is this name based on the 1983 movie, or an allusion to the difficulty of the climb?
    Pitch 1: Stem and jam the dihedral to the large belay ledge (an area of large blocks) at its top. 40', 5.6

    Pitch 2: Climb the overhanging left wall above the area of large blocks, aiming for a nice-looking short dihedral at the top of the cliff. This final dihedral is the next one to the right of the finish of RIGHTEOUS SLAB. 70', 5.9

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  July 25,1987 - George Hurley and Randy Gagne
