BETA PHOTO: EFR at the crux of Blackwater having done the cros...

Description 

This route climbs the very fun original start to Where's My Paddle but clips a bolt and heads left to the top of Blackwater. Now the whole climb is closer to the grade rather than 5.9 crack to an 11+ finish. The crux is after you join the top of Blackwater.

Location 

Starts up crack that eventually curves right as it toward the right side of the big roof.

Protection 

Cams to Blue Camalot will do fine. 1 bolt

Tributary to Blackwater avoids the first crux on Blackwater, and is consequently a bit easier than Blackwater straight up.
Both routes are superb and safe crack climbs.
