This is me on Waterboy a couple years ago. I think this is a link up from Waterboy to another climb. I am not 100% sure, but I think Waterboy end prematurely to the right and this extends it and makes

Comments: If I remember correctly, you need some thin pro to protect the move from the crack's end to the bolt. That also was the hardest move on the climb.

Comments: If you look in Vogel's West edition, the way we did it and the way my buddy Derek regularly does it is actually between Shovling-Cole and Death by Misadventure. The topo in the guide says something about a crack but we go directly up past the lone bolt in the horizontals. Big whip there but clean.

Comments: Not to be a jerk but SoCal is my home and Clevland Ntl Forest or any mountains surrounding OC are not prime in June as this graph above indicates. In fact, it may be close to the poorest time to climb. Try full on winter time.

Comments: There are some manky spinning button heads on this thing. Got my attention as one was clinking in the wind up against the rock prior to clipping it. I traversed in two bolts of it from WOTW and then back left to the first anchors of WOTW. Made it actually WILD! Also the Vogel guide has it at 10b??
