Description

The route Ascends the vertical Face between the two prominent water grooves. You should have some long runners or two ropes to avoid rope drag.

Just follow the bolts up, then left, then up, then right, then up, then left, then up and to the top. The perfect route for 2 ropes. It's better than it sounds.

Protection

Double Ropes or Long Runners.8 Bolts.

As I recall we put this up in the summer of 89' Travis and his friend Greg had just graduated from high school. One afternoon hiking in to climb at the wall Greg was singing California Dreaming it had just hailed and it looked like snow on the ground. A couple of days latter Travis was trying to push the 11b direct line on this and took a huge whipper/screamer.

Also Paul Piana and Kevin Bein top roped most of the routes on the wall earlier in the 80's. I was talking with Paul while sitting on Aquarium looking over at the wall he knew all of the climbs and ratings, having not been over there for several years, he didn't know that they had all been bolted already.
