Paul starting up Pitch 5


This climb has very long unprotected runouts on at times flaky rock,and is not recommended for 5.6 leaders. However it will give one a thirst ,more so if a beer salesman is involved. It does of course provide great views from its summit!. Starts just down to the right of the wave left of the chocolate topped wave on the Surfing the Swell formation. P1)From a few feet right and below the top of the wave traverse out to the right to a bolt at about 30' . From here continue climbing up and to the right until above a flake formation and double anchors 200'5.5/6.R P2).Follow a flaky slab towards a groove to reach double anchors. 200'5.4/5.R P3)Climb more or less straight up to double anchors . 150'5.4/5R. P4). More long runouts heading straight up through black rock to double anchors. 200'5.4/5R.P5)Straight up passed a large hole to the summit (best pitch)to double anchors.200'5.4.R.. Rap the route
