This is a VERY popular climb, with good reason. It is all overhung and traverses left up to an increasingly crimpy finish.


In the center of the eastern white Wave section, maybe 50 feet left of the chimney. The only route with fixed draws.


Fixed draws with two for anchors. There may be a bolt or two without fixed draws.

This thing is super fun and really well bolted- good holds, fun movement, well worth getting on.

For locals- if someone is of a mind, the last chain draw should be lengthened- as it is, the carabiner's gate loads onto the rock and opens when you weight the draw. Not so worrisome as the carabiner is steel, but probably not ideal either. Jun 6, 2014
