BETA PHOTO: Dam The Water Board goes up the slab to a large le...


Dam The Water Board climbs a slab to a large ledge, then follows flakes and crack to an anchor. The only bolt is approximately 20 feet off the ground, and if you come off before the ledge, you may be grounding. Above the ledge protects fairly well. Snark Hunt to the left offers a safer lead, but it is harder.

Mr. Hubbel shows a right variation. It did not seem any harder this way, but you are definitely grounding if you come off going this way.


See the photo. Dam The Water Board lies between Snark Hunt on the Left and No Bore A Bora on the right. To descend, rap from anchor (60m works). If toproping, you will have to rap from trees at the top to the Dam The Water Board anchor.


1-bolt & light rack.
