Description Suggest change

A devious climb with a tough start, Slip Stream is a true sandbag for its 5.6 rating in the DCA. Excellent protection makes up for committing moves in some sections, especially down low. This is NOT a good choice for a beginning leader.

Start at a crack in a right-facing corner. Move up and left to a left-facing corner, then continue up to mantel onto a slopy ledge. Continue up the face, passing the Bubble Bath anchors on your right, to finish at anchors at the top of the cliff.

Location Suggest change

Starts 10' left of Bubble Bath.

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium gear -- nuts, cams, hexes. Bolted anchors
