Safety Issue Suggest change

If water is running down the streak to the right of Top Rope Route then most likely, when you turn the lip, it is slopey, and can be seriously slick. Before you know it, you could be burning rubber and sandpapering fingertips all the way down to the top of that hand crack 35' down the wall!

Falling notes: While whipping off this route a few times, escaping relatively unscathed. I found that once the rapid descent started, that skidding my feet trying to keep my hands off the wall seemed to work best to avoid the road rashed tips.
