Description 

The crux of this climb starts down low. The opening 15 ft are pretty sustained moves over small crimps. Once you reach the 3rd bolt, the difficulty backs off quite a bit and affords some really enjoyable face climbing over positive holds. There's one last move trying to reach the shuts that will likely get your attention. Route may be a bit dirty if climbing after a rain. Definitely worth doing!

Location 

Locate Raging Waters. This route starts about 5 or 6 feet left of it and about 10 ft to the right of the start to Straight up and Stiff

Protection 

7 bolts, shuts. If you don't like the idea of making the last moves with a bolt 4 ft below your feet, you can easily place a small cam (.33-.5") in a horizontal at your waist as you make the final move. Clean fall without it though.

just filthy after a rain.... took two laps before the silt was gone from the holds. and it was in each and every single one bottom to top. Fun movement after it was cleaned up.
