Surf up jugs in and around a winding crack to a good rest midway up the route. Choose between the left variation that climbs past a bolt through a reachier face or follow the flake system to the right. Either way, a short and sweet crux awaits as the routes diverge. An additional crux rewards those choosing the bolted line, which protects a continuance of the jug haul from the start. Delightful!
A winding crack slithers up the overhanging east face of the Wavebreak Wall, just a few feet from the Jagged Edge arete. Rappel from the top or walk off/downclimb very carefully to the north.
Standard rack. RPs or brass essential, one quickdraw for the bolt. The anchors can be shared with Jagged Edge (5.8). One is a rusty old buttonhead. The webbing was pretty old, so we added to it. I have doubts about the R rating from the Ruckman guide, but I have yet to lead it, so I can't disagree. It looks like it would sew up easily enough, but the pump factor would greatly increase due to the overhanging nature of the route.
