To reach the next route head left along the track
past some steep faces (good boulder traverse) to
a large left leaning dihedral. This is the Dihedral
Wall, and is easy to spot from the carpark.
Climb easily up to the
base of a shallow groove a few feet left of the
dihedral. Head up the groove past a fixed nut,
traversing left at the top of a ledge to two bolts.
A bit run out.
From here there are two options for continuing.

From the two bolts head
right to the crack (look for an old wooden
peg from the original attempt). Step right
and follow a series of underclings (1½ cam)
and scoops to a right tending ramp (bolt and
3 cam), then up to chain belay.
The bolts were added by Guy White, Chris
North and Emily Lane in 1996, thinking they
were doing a new route.
