Description 

This wonderful slab has good rock and fun moves all the way up. Though it is rated 5.8, the only 5.8 climbing is maybe a move or two shortly after leaving the ground. After that, the climbing just gets easier but stays fun the whole way. Expect big pockets and side pulls.

Location 

Go uphill until you hit a wall with many pockets covering it's face. just to the right is a gully continuing a ways to the top. Chalk Wave is the left most bolt line on the slab face.

Protection 

9 bolts. anchors.
