Description

This is the second route from the left on the Water Dome. Straight up and over the small roof/bulge. The bulge is the business section.

Protection

This route keeps coming at you. It is a trust your feet route, where you step up on good smears, but there are only small slopers for your hands which work better pushing on them instead of pulling - classic slab technique!

It has several "cruxes". High stepping below first bolt and moving past the second bolt, mantel to finish the roof, and smearing to reach the anchors.

My girlfriend thought it a tad harder than 5.7. Jul 1, 2017

This was a terrific route! Best part is going over the bulge -- well protected and easier than it looks from below. Excellent climb! Jun 20, 2010
