 Not in honour of dehy dinners, but the army that invaded Iraq, and quickly left again, in 1991. Takes the slanting seam across the prominent red wall. Start up Under A Blood red Sky until a traverse left can be made to ledges under the slanting seam. Climb the seam, with small wires and one bolt for protection, to reach the ledge. Belay at the ledge’s left end.
