Dip Wall

Post by elcapitan1974 » Tue Dec 09, 2008 10:54 pm

I was at Dip Wall the other week and noticed a crack system 20 to 30 left of green eggs/ham. It starts in a low roof and pulls up into a less than vertical crack in a dihedral for maybe 20/ 30 feet to a ledge. At the ledge you go right, and up into what looks to be another crack system to the top. I did not notice anchors at that time. I went back out there sunday to check it out and this time noticed some bolted anchors at the ledge. I do not think its Purple Cleaning! Does anyone know anything about this route?

It has been climbed by at least Dave Texter. Can't remember the details ,but somewhere on this site someone mentioned it once.

The crack and dihedral system to the right of GE&H looks like it would be very cool if the dead tree were gone. I was plotting on some way to climb up under the tree and then knock it off, but didn't get a chance before I left.
