A good climb with no particular cruxy move... but certainly a hand-size dependent climb. Climb up a short warm-up pitch to bolted anchors and lower off from brand new bolts and chains. A good route overall that gets sun from first light until near dusk in the winter.
Near the far North end of the East/Southeast face of the Sparks Wall there is a broad but detatched tower barely separated from the base of the main cliff. On the main face of this, facing the road and perhaps 15 meters from its left edge, there is a vertical crack system that goes from tight hands to wider up top. This is Sparkling Gefilte Fish. To the right of this perhaps 6 meters more there is a striking off-hands to off-width in a right-facing corner, Sparkling Schnitzel.
Two of everything from 2" to 3.5"

Chains on one of the bolts are a bit wimpy and could stand to be beefed up, not greatest anchor at the creek, nor the worst.
