Clip the first bolt of Exodus before heading left and clipping the next two bolts of Sunshine Dust Bunnies. Head up onto the giant knob and straight up the black water streak, clipping two more bolts along the way before topping out at the rap rings. There is also a fun 11a TR variation heading straight up the face to the right of the black water streak (or if you just like making things harder than they need to be, lead the 11a, and make the clips out left).




5 clips to double rap rings

Great moderate route for the area. The curving nature of the route does create a lot of drag by the time you get mid way up or so. Not a problem but somthing to be aware of.
