Josh Janes on the Terminator 5.12
The Left Wall is a stunning section of rock which sports heady starts that lead to wonderfully split cracks. It is the meat and potatoes of the Waterfall area.

Giardia is a superb pitch for the grade, and classic Waterfall sports action.... The crux involves some very powerful moves over the roof/bulge on positive holds. This route starts above the obvious little spring at the base of the wall. Climb a slightly unpleasant off fist size crack to the roof which has a very thin crack splitting it. Plug in a couple pieces of gear, and get ready to crank out some awesome moves which seem puzzling until you start into it. Continue up the dihedral into a fan...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
