Directions:  Just right of WET DIHEDRAL's broken start are some steep red-stained slabs. Near the center of the leftmost red slab is an obvious straight-in jam crack which fades out just before it reaches a ledge about forty feet up.
Description: 
    Pitch 1: Start just right of the straight-in crack, and climb up using the face and crack to the first obvious ledge. Go a few moves up a dihedral on the right side of this ledge, then step right around a blind corner onto another steep face. Thin parallel cracks lead up this face to a second ledge. Climb a short broken headwall, just left of some white streaks, and continue to trees at the top. 110', 5.10a

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
