Description 

Climb the wide hands crack for about 20 Ft to gain a stance (crux). Continue up to an offwidth section with some face holds. Once through the wide portion, trend left and up face passing several horizontal cracks and lots of holds. Top out or finish on the anchors of Raging Waters.

Location 

The first route heading downstream from the platform used to belay from on Strike a Scowl. A few feet to the right of Raging Waters start.

Protection 

#3-3.5 Camalots for the initial crack. #5 or even #6 Camalot for the really wide section. Smaller gear for the final face portion. Some very small micro nuts may be helpful to supplement the tipped out #5 in the widest section.

I didn't climb this...the guidebook I had hyped it up and I looked at it and was actually kind of grossed out and decided to climb raging waters instead. Thankfully there was an older dude there to tell me to 'go for it' since I'd never hopped on a 5.11 trad route before. This might well be a fun route though, diminished by the other awesome climbs right next to it
