rating: 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b
This route is in fact named "Humpbacks in Love" aka "The Breakup Hickey".
It may be wise to take a couple of cams up to 1" and a set of stoppers as there are some clean gear placements on the second pitch.
The F.A. party rated the entire route 5.10d with the first pitch being 5.10a & the second pitch 5.10d.
Ron Yahne & Bob Archbald did the F.A.

|I believe I led part of the first pitch years ago, as an alternate start for Waves. I remember being very unhappy about the placement of the 5th bolt; easy ground but a runout after the first four, and then when you finally reach a feature you can wrap your hands around you can't clip from it but instead must delicately balance along a ramp in order to reach the higher bolt!|
