Description

The crux is the opening moves getting into the corner. Great route with good gear and continuous climbing to the anchor.

Start about 10' left of Spirit on the Water at a water-polished bulge. Climb past the bulge (crux) into a corner. Clip a bolt and climb the corner up to a face with flared cracks. Climb past a second bolt to an overhang. Angle left under the overhang to a stance at its left edge. Move back right and continue straight up to the anchor. Lower back to the start.

Variation: the crux bulge at the start can be avoided by starting up Spirit on the Water, clipping the first bolt on that route, and then traversing left to the corner and the first bolt on Liquid Therapy. Done this way, the route is 5.8.

Location

By the creek...10 feet left of Spirit on the Water.

Eds. the beta photos have been deleted by their submitter.

This route is accessible only when the creek water level is low (late summer to mid-spring).

Protection

Doubles on Aliens up to red...then cams to hand size. 2 bolts. 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.
