Description

Take the arching flake/crack that begins right of the "water streak" route. The crack curves around back toward "water streak" and peters out. At the top of the crack place you're last gear and go up through smooth slab and small pockets (really small) and intersect the 1st "water streak" belay anchors. This is an excellent and exciting route as you run out to X territory on solid gear far below! Finish with the "water streak" or another variation if you want.

Location

Descend either by scrambling off the top or double rope rap down water streak.

Protection

Cams and stoppers.

The original 1980 guidebook has this route at 5.7+ following the arch up, over, and back down to the ground, not finishing up the Water Streak like shown in OK Select. I think finishing up the Water Steak makes it more of a variation and less of a separate climb. It also says the route is hardest done right to left. I would tend to agree as the crux seemed to be the initial down climbing on the left side. Oct 22, 2015
