Description

"Water World" during a water shortage, this route climbs up the strange hanging "tube" near the center of the crag. Climb up low angle rock, step right past 2 closely spaced bolts and the massively deceptive crux to gain the start of the "Tube" around the corner and out of sight at the beginning. Worm up the tube using any technique you want, from chimney or stem, or face climb the edges past a few more tricky bulges to a cable anchor. The leader is pretty much out of sight for most of upper half so make sure of your communications before taking anybody off belay, PLEASE!!! We used double ropes and rapped from the anchors at the top of "Dick van Dike" out of sight and a scary scramble to the east (right, facing uphill). We were tempted to just rap from the cable but were a little hesitant because of a few potential "rope eating" features under the anchor.

Protection

14-16 clips plus anchors, (175' - a 60m rope required!).
