At the top of Kill Hill, park in the first area on the right after the cattle guard. You will see two grouping of rock, one to the right and the other to the left. Water Groove is located on the southwest corner of the right grouping. It basically looks like an egg balancing tip down on some rocks. A water groove ascends the south corner in an obvious well.. water groove. Good luck. I have yet to put this one together.


Good flat landing but it tops out at around 25 feet, so a pad and spot are a good idea.

I think the R is just due to the height. Aug 6, 2012

The initial crux, getting off the ground into the groove, is technical and more than a V3. Is that what the R is from? Anyone that makes it look V3... I wanna watch. Aug 5, 2012
