Walk right from Up Swift Creek to locate this beautiful, thin dihedral which was recently freed. Free climbing technique required technical foot scumming, stemming, liebacking, and other weirdness. Take small gear and very large balls! It's the "Book of Hate" of the south.

Moves: Bouldery or Technical
Descent: Rap anchors-double ropes required
Stays Dry:
Owner: NFS: Clifty Wilderness Area

I did the FA. Anybody coming after doing it in better style likes donkey dicks covered in snot.

One of the most aesthetic lines I have ever seen. Great job, Matt.

sent to the face hold about half way up the dihedral where the crack dissapears, looks as if you have to stem for a couple of feet until the crack gets big enough to acctually fit your tips in. Any advice or beta? the steming looks very hard possibly.
