Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

The arete immediately to the right of Rocket Man.

Protection [Edit]

#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
