EFR doing battle with the final moves

Description 

Start up a moderate slab to a fun move onto a ledge. Climb steep thin face then out right through the roof. The climbing keeps getting harder with every bolt you clip, right to the final pull onto the ledge.


Location 

Last route on the right side of Up the Creek Wall.

Starts 10 feet right of Blackwater.


Protection 

Bolts, chains

Don't know where the paddle is now but I know it was on my butt when I got on this climb. Really fun steep climbing over a roof with big holds that seem to shrink the longer you are on them. The route turns the right side of the big roof.

You will love this climb Jbak! It has everything you like, a little thin face climbing to big holds on overhanging rock. It would be worth one more trip out there to do this one.

I'll get back out there some time. I'll be interested to see what you found. I wandered through some of the crags but nothing quite grabbed me. I thought that steep little crag at the top of the ridge was going to be something, but no luck.
