Description

This was probably my favorite route in the Moonlight Ridge area. Thought provoking placements... bolts JUST where you need them... and just EXCELLENT moves.

Location

The arete immediately to the right of Rocket Man.

Protection

#0.4 - #4 Camalots, 2 shoulder length runners and 5 bolts. Chained anchors.

One of the longest and scariest falls that I have ever taken climbing came on this route a number of years back-- successfully kicked off over a ledge or my ankles would have been broken or worse. Don't do what I did back then (e.g. hesitate). Instead, look right at the crux (where it transitions to a sport climb), find the holds that are there and side-pull through it decisively ( move is actually a bit easier than you think it will be at first). Next sparsely bolted bit is ok-- if you aren't pumped out from hesitating at the crux! I have to admit that, despite this experience, Wave Goodbye is quite a good route actually... Dec 14, 2016
