Nice interesting trad climb, it's short but has a good mix of cracks and corner climbing. It's very aptly named, with all the water dripping on your face, you really feel like you're fixing a leaky sink! Some of the moves looked a lot more committing than they actually were once I made them, there are plenty of feet and handholds the whole way up if you look around. Even with the wet rock, it's an easy climb.
It's a good route to setup top rope as a warmup, or for beginning climbers. Since it requires trad gear (only 1 bolt right before the anchor), you'll probably find it empty. I used a couple cams (.5 - #3), and a medium nut slotted in a horizontal crack.
