Description Suggest change

A really cool not-so-Rumneyish route due to the slabby nature of its crux. It's not so much a slab as it is a not too steep face climb.
In short, I'd say be ready to crimp on tiny edges and be prepared for some fancy footwork.

Start on good holds on a steep face for the first few bolts but this part isn't too hard. The first tricky part is pulling on to the slab on an assortment of tiny edges to gain a good foothold where you can catch a little rest. Climb a little higher to get to the next (thank god) bolt and encounter the crux as you move over a small overlap and a little to the left where soon the climbing gets easier and you are on to the top. At the low angle crux think feet rather than hands because what hands you have are so tiny you won't want to pull on them.

Location Suggest change

Way left past Waimea and the popular 5.14 section there is a small section of cliff with a few short 5.13s and this route. This one is on the right hand corner of this part of the cliff.

Protection Suggest change

5 bolts to two pins where you want your anchor. ignore the pins unless you need a directional and walk right to a chain anchor.
