Description 

Interesting start to get established in the splitter. I reached out to put the first piece in the finishing splitter from a wide stem. I really loved the way the crack on the right opened up from medium nut to #1 camalot, very striking.

Location 

Just as you arrive at the base of the Waterfall, turn left and look for the striking twin crack 30' off the deck. Anchor is bolted and we found carabiners, although they are a bit worn.

Protection 

nuts, double up small tcus to #2 camalot

After leading the Sword don't forget to toprope Vertebrae. You'll be glad you did.

The first section is so-so, but the top half is great.

a #3 and even a #4 is handy at the top, if you don't like the thinner gear options on the left crack.
