Description 

This is a really cool and very aesthetic tidal wave bloc near Dionysian Ecstasy. Start on the obvious jug and make your way up the left arete using one or two holds on the face. Hit the obvious finishing jug in the center of the lip, throw a heel hook, and mantel.

Location 

From Dionysian Ecstasy, walk downhill towards Rupture. The tidal wave bloc is on your right as you go down. It is hard to miss it!

Protection 

A couple of crashpads, maybe a spotter.

Although I'm not sure I was the first to do this, there was a lot of lichen on all of the holds that would be used and no chalk or landing. The top-out was super dirty! In short, there is no evidence of this having been done before me. I brushed up all the holds today and climbed it.
