Just above the starting wedged block.

Description 

This is a little top rope problem that turns out to be fun. Natural protection opportunities are scant, so in keeping with the posted desires for the crag, it's a top rope. Some might consider this a variation of Honey Pot, but it climbs quite differently.

About 20-25 feet left of Honey Pot, there are some wavy water streaks. The easiest start has you pulling on a wedged block (hopefully it will not move). Pull aboard and grope your way upward. Each time when you need a good hold, one seems to appear. Angle gradually towards the anchors of Honey Pot. Smile.


Location 

This starts about 20-25 feet left of Honey Pot above some bushes on some wavy water streaks.


Protection 

Top rope off of Honey Pot's anchor. You may be able to get a direction or two, but the swing doesn't seem too bad.
