Is that the Great Dihedral that requires "houdini like moves" to complete the crux?

No, the Great Dihedral is bigger than this one.

Got it. The pixels were hardly dry on this one.

Whadda route, the phase 'sustained arm melting' comes to mind.

I can't guess RG's last route, but here's another non-Gunks mini-clasic:



If it's too hard to guess in B&W, I have a longer-range color photo that might give it away to anyone who's done it.

GO

Including Winter-thin stemming (this is 5.9?) and thinner gear right over the belayer (please don't fall, please don't fall), before that exposed, trap-door escape hatch out to the beautiful dihedral. What a route!
