Start off ledge with Bay of Pigs to the left and Breaking Waves to the right. Climb 2-3 bolts to below a roof. Make a reachy clip at the lip of roof. Climb slightly left of roof for the crux move and make the clip which leads to easier ground. The bolt above the roof at crux has recently been moved into a better position due to hold breakage. Previously clipping the bolt was the crux.


This is on a ledge 25 feet off deck, which can be gained via 3rd class to right or left side of ledge.


Bolts with 2 bolt anchor.
