Description

Start by climbing the low fifth class jugs above the flat boulder about 50' into the Big Gash. Start out with a scramble of about 15' off the flat boulder to a nice ledge. This ledge is a good place to belay and set up a basecamp for climbing the four routes listed here. The route climbs the wavy crack feature right of route #L1.

Location

As you walk into the Big Gash after about 50' there is a flat boulder you must step down over. On the right side are the first two bolted routes. Now look up the left side. There is a wavy crack about 45' above you. The route climbs the wavy crack.

Protection

One set of Cams .3" to 4", One set of Stoppers, Over the shoulder slings and Quickdraws
