A poor, 0.5-mile series of game paths leads from the Chief Joseph Mountain Trail to Dihedrals rock climbing area. The path, which is marked with cairns, heads southwest, climbing slightly. Seventy-five yards up the path, at the second cairn, the path turns right (west). It heads west for 30 yards to a blaze on a tree. The trail turns slightly to the left 20 yards past the blaze, and climbs around a small rock outcropping. It bears to the right 30 yards farther, climbing up and around another small outcropping.
