Description

This route is way more fun (and better protected) than it appears to be from the ground. Interesting moves take you up the flaring crack. Continue to follow the rounded arete to the top. If anchoring on Water in Motion, you can either hand traverse left across the top of the wall (not recommended for the second) or traverse a little bit lower along a slight ledge system.

Location

Look for the small, vegetated gully just left of Ghost Dancers and Thin Pockets. Spring Break starts in the flaring crack just left of the gully.

Protection

standard rack. anchor to tree at top of arete, or better yet traverse left to the bolted anchors over Water in Motion.

There was a downed tree near the top making for some interesting moves/climbing to reach the anchors. (summer/fall of 2011) Apr 23, 2012

It is better than it looks, the moves are actually really fun. There is poor gear in the middle and at the top. Your second really shouldn't finish this climb the same way you lead it, they should remove the last of your gear and traverse straight left under the anchor and thru the downed widow maker.
