Description 

The route was originally cleaned for the new local Steve Arsenault. Steve never did make it out, so the local crew "The Chinos" nabbed the route!
This climb starts on the left side of the Right Wall. A lone bolt 25' up marks the start. Climb up under a overlap and follow a left facing flake to its end. Make the crux moves and clip a bolt. Continue straight up the face placing gear and slinging natural threads in horizontals. Surmount a small juggy roof to a large ledge with a chain anchor.


Location 

All the way left on the Right Wall


Protection 

1 bolt, Standard Rack, Long Runners, 2 Bolt Chain Anchor

This is a fun route. May feel harder than the grade suggests... at least to the leader. I like how it feels sustained, but you still get good holds to place the gear from.

Nice play on the name of www.mountainproject.com/v/waiting-for-comeau/105989074 (or at least I hope it is a play on the name).
