Description [Suggest Change]

This route is on Revolution Buttress, a series of faces and cracks to the right of the landmark black water streak. The Drain, a classic bouldering traverse, lies immediately left of this line.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Four bolts. The first bolt is sixteen feet up, so be careful. The crux is after the second bolt.

At the crux (second bolt), I kind of went straight up and to the right over the roof, still within clipping disance of the bolt to the left. This felt maybe 10b, and I then had to traverse left a ways to clip the third cold shut. I suppose going left at the second bolt to the third is the intended way, but I couldn't tell--not much traffic here, didn't see any chalk on these climbs. Dec 30, 2003
