I doubt that the right facing dihedral in the picture is the left facing dihedral in the description. The route in the picture had nothing to do with the guidebook description. It did not "end on top of a block" There was no obvious short path to a tree from which one could rappel. There was a small tree to the right on a ledge that was accessible but would not be a good belay station for the route. We climbed the route in the picture and found protection all the way to the top in a trajectory that meandered quite a bit. I kept climbing because I kept finding protection with no obvious good ending to the route. Rope drag stopped me 25' below the top. My partner pink pointed on my gear, fixed the drag and topped out. The route ended up being 103' as gauged by my 70 m rope. On the way to the route's finish there is an overhanging roof which had fantastic movement. We need to sort this out. ... not that anyone cares anyway. :-)
