Face climb on smallish but positive holds to a right-slanting crack that parallels the overhang underneath. Traverse left one step, and then move upward to jugs on the steep face above. Beware the "sucker jugs". You might think you have the crux nailed, but then...!


The climb starts about 10-12 feet right from the lowest point of the "Wave" right-slanting overhang, about directly in line with the lower intersection of a right-upward slanting crack, and a horizontal crack just under the overhang.


Gear, or tree anchors. bring long slings. enough cracks to make leading possible.
