two-thirds of an great route, one-third of a weird, somewhat disappointing dihedral. best of luck with your gear if you're struggling up there..

Perfect hand crack to chossy almost unprotectable dihedral. There's a #1 placement somewhere in there, just don't fall on it.

Aliens/Mastercams make the top not quite so sketchy.

The hand crack might offer the best handjams I have yet done in the Red.

Like Autumn without the overhanging part, but a harder finish.
