Directions:  The left-facing dihedral in the middle of the narrow cliff face.
Description: An interesting climb with a stiff start and perplexing moves up high.
    Pitch 1: Climb an awkward left-leaning corner/crack (5.9+) to a slab. You can protect these moves with a #4 Friend. At a horizontal crack move up and left to another crack system, which is followed past 2 fixed pins to the final crux reaching up and left for good holds.

Gear: stoppers to a #4 Friend
Descent: rappel from a small tree and a natural tunnel
History:  October 8, 1996 - George Hurley, Mike Kahn
