Just before a gully in the trail is this pocketed dihedral plagued with a chossy start. If you can stomach the beginning the corner will make you forget about it. A bolted vertical face takes this one beyond the crack. Bring small gear for the corner and a big cam for the chossy start.
Moves: Pumpy
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry

the start is very chossy and should be treated with care. a 4" cam protects this section well. the bullet corner is worth the crap rock start.
