Description

Start up left of the first bolt on a relatively smooth, black-colored section of rock, using good feet, an undercling pocket, and a reachy move or two. Continue straight up past the first bolt on good edges for both hands and feet.

After the third bolt is a slightly trickier section, but good holds are available. Finally, trend a bit right to the anchors (for the full value, climb over the little bulge directly below the anchors rather than going around the bulge on the left).

Location

Starts up a prominent black area of rock; the middle of the three bolted routes.

Protection

5 bolts, double-ring anchors.

Getting off the ground wasn't a problem, but the next two moves up to the first bolt and onward were tricky. Maybe it is just our height (we're all 5'8" and shorter)? I'm inclined to think that some holds have broken off, partially because as I was going for the first bolt, my left hand hold ripped off the wall. There were some other loose stuff on the way up that we cleaned, before it started pouring on us and we scampered home. Aug 26, 2014

If it wasn't for the first move or two and the washed out bottom half making footholds poor this route would be a .6 or .7. Good route for someone to start climbing or learn how to lead. Apr 15, 2014

Really fun route with a tricky start. Good rest on a big ledge in the middle before a strong finish. I had a beginning lead climber set this one after I put in the first clip. The route is well protected. Although some of the bolts may seem drawn out, that is just because of the ease of the climbing. Jun 28, 2012

It's a good taste of vertical (or close to it) with enormous holds and interesting rock. I'll come back for another go on it. Oct 15, 2010

Really fun route. Its easy, but you get some fun moves all the way up. Good holds all the way up, but sometimes you have to look for a second. The feet are solid, so the looking isn't scary at all. Oct 24, 2009

Got on this one again the other day and it was better than I remember it being. Really enjoyable, cruiser climbing on great rock and big jugs. Fun! Changing it from two stars to three stars... Sep 8, 2009

Fun climb, huge jugs. There's a cool hold in the upper section that looks like it's about to break off, but it's bomber. Sep 7, 2009

Fun easy wall. I think someone has the ratings backwords for this and the one to the left. This felt more like the 5.7 and Aqeous felt like a 5.8 at least. Good ledges, positive holds and a small bat cave towards the top. Aug 21, 2009

Worthwhile route. Rather straightforward, fun climbing on good edges. Sweet rock and some really cool holds. Sep 24, 2008

C'mon, where's your Google-Fu? I was looking for a name related to tides and thought all the y's made for an interesting-looking word; the buzzing, Dr. Seuss-like pronunciation is a bonus. Sep 24, 2008
Um...how did you say that again? The easiest line on the wall. mellow climbing to the top with a big ledge in the middle. Sep 24, 2008
