Description 

Pumpy, steep-steep, soft, red rock-it's why the kids who wear snazzy knickers come here. Worth the walk and nothing like the crimps on Tsunami.


Location 

Only route on the wall.


Protection 

6 bolts

On 5/14/10 The LVCLC with help from the ASCA replaced the 4th protection bolt on the route. The bolt was moved about 1' higher due to rock quality concerns. The anchor bolts were also replaced and mussy hooks were added. All bolts replaced are 1/2" x 3.5 5-piece bolts. The first bolt was not replaced (we could not safely do it without several crash pads), so bring a stick clip for this route- the second bolt (now the 1st) is roughly 15' up.

Super fun route. Thanks, John, for the re-bolting effort.
