Description

Great water groove climbing. Well protected (except a few easy sections).
P1: climb easy slab past one bolt to anchor, 5.7
P2: climb up water groove past a few pieces of gear to the first of several bolts. follow bolts to anchor, 5.10+
P3: climb up to 5.11 boulder problem overhang, pull it and continue up amazing steep and sustained grooving to anchor. A #1 camalot? goes in between a couple of bolts after the boulder problem and then there is no other natural gear (but many bolts), 5.11b (very well protected)
P4: follow water groove up and right past a bolt and gear to its end. break onto the face and clip another bolt on the way to anchors up and right, 5.9
P5: follow water groove to your right to anchor, 5.8
P6 continue following water groove to an anchor with webbing on it if you want, 5.7

Location

maybe 100 feet right of start of seconds. you have to follow a narrow dirt ramp up and left to get to the start

Protection

Well protected. nothing really big really. lots of bolts on crux pitch (13??)
