Primrose Dihedrals, 5.11d
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
3rd Pitch- 50’- 5.10/ You won’t get much of a net gain on this pitch as you are really just moving the belay up to a significant ledge up and to your left. Down climb at least 25’ until you can access a bomber finger ledge that you use to traverse left (this traverse is void any foot features). The leader is basically top roped on the down climb but placing any gear through here for the second will be awkward when you start your ascent up the flakes and cracks to the left. Hand walk the ledge left until into the small cracks and ascend a weird flake with good small pro up to the large, but sloping, ledge above with a fixed belay.
