Description

Left facing slightly overhanging corner directly up from second belay station of the "Water Streak". Steep Lay back moves get you to the lip. Heel hook over the right side of the lip and grab a bomber hold on the left side of lip. Flop yourself over the lip (crux) and continue up to the belay station (trad). Very committing climb with exposure that turns many away. But lots of fun when you've done it.

Location

Rout Starts directly above the second belay station of the "Water Streak". Often considered the third pitch of water streak. After belly flopping over the lip, continue up the large crack (5.0 to high 4th class) until you reach a horizontal crack on the right intersecting the vertical crack. Use the horizontal crack to set up Belay (1 to 2.5 inch cams or hexes) or set up sketchy belay just to the right of the belly flop over the lip. From the belay, traverse right along the horizontal crack until it runs out, then fourth class it to the gully. Follow the gully down about 130 feet and look for belay station for the Tree Rout on the wall on the left (when facing down hill) side. Use two ropes to rappel down. Or, from the Buns Up Trad belay station, traverse left (fourth class) to a boulder field-gully and scramble down.

Protection

Two large (4 to 6 inch) Cams and a large sling for semi detached boulder just on top. 5 to 7 inch cams if you want to protect the run out to the belay crack up higher. 1 to 2.5 inch cams for belay.
