Description 

The name says it all. A steep friction start that would be hard even without the slimy black water streak makes the 5.5 rating incomprehensible.

Starting at a prominent water streak, grunt and balance your way up to an old and rusty but apparently solid bolt. Clip the bolt and continue on easier ground to the top.

Location 

Starts about 30' right of the Two Man Party Orange route.

Protection 

Mostly small cams and passive pro. Build a gear anchor.

The start to this route is a 5.9 boulder problem. I don't know where the 5.6 rating comes from, except that it's listed that way in Dixie Craggers. The first bolt is old, rusty, and has two hangers on it. Dave Fortner used to call it the double headed bolt.
