Description

Smear your way up the smooth wall using all your slab route finding skills to find the path of least resistance, all the while facing serious punishment if you slip while on the lead...

From the belay at the base of Ninth Wave walk right about 20 ft clip the rusty bolt and follow a little to the right of the thin seam...Once past the seam head a little left and make for a flared crack above the wave... Little, steady steps will get you there but you must be patient...

Protection

Not much... There is a nasty old bolt to the left of the climb that I might clip but wouldnt trust...

Easily top roped from anchor...

I put a Screamer on the 40 year OLD 1/4" bolt, which is in terrible shape. A new bolt is needed, but even then don't blow it, it's a 60' runout. Great rock though. Love it! Nov 9, 2015

Ninth Wave is still without pro anchor to anchor. It's top anchor though is 2 rusty bolts and a button head. I clip them as a directional for my 2nd and use the newer anchors on Stop If You Dare or Beginners. Wankers still has 1 bolt, but it's new. Nov 15, 2015
