A few meters right of Water Grove, there is a second set of crack systems, another 10-15 meters north. There cross in a narrow "X." The one starting to the left and rising up and right is Eaten Alive.
Start up on a few slabby moves to reach a somewhat wide and flaring crack system. Gear will be occasional, with a tree root plugging the back of the crack for much of the bottom half, making the route R. Above the trees at about 1/2 height, the crack gets wider and one climbs partially into it for the ascent, leading to the obvious name. From the top, go to the rock sumit via climbing the ridge Southward and up.
This climb is an obvious wide flare with the tree roots in it on the lower end, and a squeeze chimney for the upper half. It runs up and right from the base crossing a hand-crack system like an X. It is perhaps 30 meters down from the South end of Jaws, and 10m right of Water Groove.
This was done OS downsolo without gear from the summit. As such, no gear was placed, but I was left with the impression that it was unlikely that much would be possible.
