Description

The guidebook states that this is voted the steepest and most fun per move climb at Skaha. Feels like one big boulder problem. It is acrobatic, sustained, and fully earns its rating.

Location

The western-most sport climb on The Wave. You will see this one first if you are approaching from Another Buttress. It is a steep cave-like bay. Watch out for poison ivy around the base, but I guess that goes for all climbing at Skaha.

Protection

7 bolts, chain anchors.

Kind of contrived with a crappy finish. The anchors should be 4 feet left of where they are. Not a fan. May 25, 2014
