Start by climbing the low fifth class jugs above the flat boulder about 50' into the Big Gash. Start out with a scramble of about 15' off the flat boulder to a nice ledge. This ledge is a good place to belay and set up a basecamp for climbing the next four routes listed here. The route climbs the bolted water groove above the ledge. The crux is near the overlap in the middle of the pitch. This route makes for a nice warmup.


As you walk into the Big Gash about 50' in there is a flat boulder you must step down over. At this point on the right side are the first two routes. Look up the left side and there is a water groove about 45' above you. The route climbs the water groove.
