  • Description 

    Take the arching flake/crack that begins right of the "water streak" route. The crack curves around back toward "water streak" and peters out. At the top of the crack place you're last gear and go up through smooth slab and small pockets (really small) and intersect the 1st "water streak" belay anchors. This is an excellent and exciting route as you run out to X territory on solid gear far below! Finish with the "water streak" or another variation if you want.


    Descend either by scrambling off the top or double rope rap down water streak.


    Cams and stoppers.
