Description

To get there there is a crevice between where W.A.S.P. is and Waves. you boulder up there about 20 or 30 feet and its the second route from the left. This route is killer. It is up spines. it has great hold and awesome side pulls and very good rests.

Protection

This route has awesome pro. There is about 5 or 6 bolts I think. The person who put up this route really knew what he was doing the rope runs perfectly though the spines.

If you do the route to the top of the 2nd pitch of waves as suggested above (which is a great long pitch) you need a lot more than 5 or 6 draws as listed here. Maybe double that, I wasn't counting. Jun 13, 2016

This route shares the anchor with the second pitch of Waves. It is one pitch, and the scramble up to the base may feel a bit exposed, however, the climbing is easy. Better than Waves IMO and a much faster way to the summit. Get on it! Jun 29, 2015

First ascent was by Vernon Phinney and Mike Engle in 1989. This route is not on Hornet's nest, but rather on Shipyard Rock. Oct 24, 2007
This route is a veritable wanderfest at best. Nov 24, 2005
