Description

This route climbs the obvious water trough near the far right side of Big Rock. Start up the Puppy Dog-like line of patina and follow the trough to bolted anchors.

 The first bolt is about 20 feet off the deck but you can start the climb on the large flake to the right, traversing up and left to the first clip, for a more comfortable start. There's a little spice up high, just short of the third bolt, well above the second clip. The sign and the Mayr guide rate this 5.8 but I have always felt it easier than that.

This route doesn't seem to see much action but is one of the best moderates at Big Rock. Descent is made by way of one rappel.
