Pitch one has been reestablished. Climb the first pitch of groover. From tree follow the gear left to the groove and the first bolt, continue to A 2 bolt anchor.

I did this route in June 2009. The middle bolt (there are only 3) on P2 had been chopped. This is at least the third time it's been chopped/replaced. The missing bolt creates a 60 foot runout on 5.7 slab.
Look up from the tree ledge and see if the bolt is there before you commit to the route.

Great Route. A little more sustained climbing at or near the grade compared to say Groover.
Appears all bolts are intact. To approach - climb Groover's first pitch. P1 climb flake/face on the left from the tree, past and overlap, then step into the watergroove. Continue a full rope length past a few bolts to a bolted belay, 5.9, 200 ft. P2 climb a long watergroove past 3 bolts to a bolted belay, 5.7, 125 ft. P3 step down and left from the belay, looking for a small foot on the bulge left of you. Balance over past two bolts to a groove, continue to a tree ledge and rap station, 5.9+, 125 ft. P4 climb the watergroove on the right of the belay, past bolts and gear to a rap station, 5.8, 200 ft.
