Approach

From the parking area, hike down to the base of the dome. Traverse along the base to about the middle of the dome. Tobin's Dihedral is the huge left facing corner, you can't miss it.

Route Description

Pitch 1- Climb the corner. The start takes a #4.5-#5 camalot. The crack slowly gets smaller as you climb up, taking smaller and smaller cams, all the way down to ½" near the end of the pitch. There is a bolted belay on the face, you can rap from here with 2 ropes.

Pitch 2- Continue up and belay at the top of the corner and belay there. (5.8)

Pitch 3- Climb the face passing 3 bolts tending slightly to the left, to a bolted belay, a bit run-out. (5.8)

Pitch 4- Continue up the unprotrected face to easy ground. (5.6)
