Thanks, again, for your great topo you sent me in December. And, thanks for re-bolting the belays! Truly wonderful! I just got back from soloing Dihedral and wanted to give you some feedback on your topo:
From p4, it is 3 ropes (50m) to the ground with two good (3/8" rawl) bolts at each station (sb). From p5, it is 4 ropes. All the bolts are on the face. There is also a variety of other mystery bolts on the face (some button-head, others 1/4" expansion).
I put nuts on all the rivets that had screwable heads. I think only 3 rivets are now w/o nuts.
I left a Petzl hanger on your p18 bolt. I did not place any bolts on the climb.
On your topo, you may want to indicate to go to the higher belay on P19 (Black Cave) and show the Horse Chute merging climb + (lower) belay.
To W.Buttress is 180m. 4th class DOWN (or rap fixed lines) for 20m, then up along the ledge.

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's
the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo
guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant
