Description 

Enter the wash and start up the slab (small cairn) below and to right of the obvious water streak.Due to the smooth nature of the rock on pitch two drilling on the lead was too difficult, the pitch was rap bolted . This was after a 200' run out way to the left at 5.6X in order to gain entrance into the slot canyon above the pitch.(

P1.(small cairn) Follow a line of closed cracks to a ledge with a short thick juniper tree belay.One # one Camalot pro. 160'5.6R. move belay left to below the water streak.
(P2. Excellent pitch. Climb the water streak past six pro bolts to double anchors in the slot. 150'5.10.
(P3.Easy groove on right to double anchors. 150'5.0.
(P4.Forth class for about 300' above the slot canyon until one can enter back into the slot via dark rock to a pillar in the centre of the canyon.
(P5.Follow the groove/fault that leads to the large pot holes.Some thin moves past two bolts then easy climbing to double anchors left of the top hole. 200'5.8+.
(P6 easy slab to a large open groove ,natural belay. Register in cairn above groove. 200'5.0.

Descent:-One can forth class down slabs for several hundred feet to the anchors at the top of pitch 3 . Three raps to the ground.
