Farthest left route on the Water Dome. Start by stepping left to gain the first bolt, then easy climbing up to a chain belay.

Protection 

Draws.

Route makes a backward "J" and goes up a water groove. It is well protected, but a little "thin" in a few places. Worth climbing, though. Anchors with rap rings looked good in June, 2010.

Feet. Feet. Feet. Great route. Arguably a couple of 5.9 moves in the lower half though.

The "J" shape kinda takes you out over the water, making this route feel a little more exposed. It's exhilarating!
