This route begins in an obvious, right-facing corner just to the left of Waves of Rays. The first three bolts are on the right-facing wall. Climb over the arete, and join the upper half of Waves of Rays. They use the same anchors.


10 bolts and two anchors.

The 11a rating is what is given in the book. I think this line is perhaps a number grade easier than that. If you're a 5.10 leader, as I am on a good day, you will feel comfortable on this one. Nov 28, 2005

Wow that's quite a downgrade. I was very "tired" when I did it (on a top rope) and thought it was easy for 11a, but 10a doesn't quite right either. Felt a couple notches harder that the 10c (Waves of Rays), so maybe WOR is 5.9? That's possible. Anyway, these routes are OK, nothing special and not worth the hike from a pure climbing perspective, but possibly worthwhile for the scenery. Nov 15, 2008

First ascent: Dianne Barrow, Mark Rolofson, Rick Leitner, & Chris Alber in January 1998. Gotta love the rating system & the psychology behind it. I climbed this route numerous times, & I'll stick with .11a. Perhaps it can be climbed less direct at the crux. Great pitch with good rock. Mar 15, 2017
