Description 

This climb starts about 100 yards to the right of Schooldaze, and the River Arch is apparent. Climb up to the tree at the bottom of the River Arch (the left-facing headwall which describes a lazy arc). Climb the River Arch to the bottom of the "Bathtubs", a series of water-carved basins large enough to get down with one's significant other, should the mood seize you. Ascend the bathtubs to the start of Upper Lip, a beautiful 5.7 hand crack, or take the right-leaning splitter crack to the right, up and around to the top.


Protection 

Medium to large nuts, medium hexes, cams up to 3 inches.

I might recommend at least one larger cam for the River Arch pitch(es). Upper Lip is definitely the way to go from the bathtub area.
