Climbing off a boat with the water up!

Description 

This is a very high quality route. It may be quite challenging if 5.11a is your limit. The first bolt is quite high (20 feet), consider stick clipping it. Start by climbing straight up passing the first bolt to reach the overhang. Pass the overhang on the left side following a flake. Diagonal up and right to reach a nice rest in a horizontal. From here, go straight up on some small and sloping holds aiming for a jug about 5 feet to the right of the next bolt (crux). From here, diagonal up and left to the finish, the climb gives you one more move to think about as you head to the shuts. This route is one of the first to get sun at this area.

Location 

From the descent gully, head right (facing the lake). Continue until you come to the obvious steep wall perpendicular to the lake with many sport routes.

Protection 

6 bolts to a new 2 bolt anchor.
