Description

Waterslip Down is accessed (as for Grevious Angel) from ledges above and west of the Gold Pond. Getting into the route is pretty exciting business. Move to the eastern edge of the ledge and look around the corner and the finger crack you see is Waterslip. You have to place some gear, then crank up into the crack with instant exposure as you move over the void. Then just head to the top. Mostly fingers and wide fingers.

Protection

Nuts, good selection of cams from small to medium large.

Definitely one of the most exciting starts you'll ever do on a one pitch route. Too many people don't build a sufficient anchor for their belayer, which is very dangerous. This route gets right into the business so a solid belay anchor with the belayer tensioned against it is important. Mar 20, 2008
One of my favorite climbs at the Forks.
Love the lead and looking back down at water, in Az ! Apr 7, 2008
