Start at the base of High Tides, in the crack to the right.
Take the large flake out for a traverse right to the next vertical crack. Shimmy up that crack (this is the crux!), and then top out/walk off for a cruiser finish. There is a belay bolt near the top you can use to help build an anchor.
The top is a bit moss covered. This is a fun route to rebuild your ego if you keep getting shut down on High Tides.
It is immediately right of High Tides by Clear Creek. Use the large crack (that can also be used for High Tides), then the undercling traverse to the right. Watch out for the less than ideal feet.
We used about 8 cams and 1 nut. The undercling traverse takes gear like a champ. Once you start trying to pull the crux, watch out for the flake flex!
