Description Suggest change

Mostly sunny, east facing cirque with several bolted sport/slab climbs from 5.6 to 5.10.

Getting There Suggest change

Head to the top of P2 of Motorboating then cross the 3rd Class Ledge. Hike the Jim Thompson trail to the south then turn when you reach the "tank" (a medium sized pond). See map on Motoboating route. The first bolt line you come to is Aquawoman (5.9) and is just at the edge of the cirque.
