Start at the heuco to the left of the Wave. Delicately slab your way to the top via smears and the arete edge.


Wave Boulder. The slab to the left. Look for big heuco

Does this route parallel the curve of "the wave?" I think I sent it, but I used the underclings to the left and up, keeping my feet on the slab. Andy Wellman's book kinda shows it trending the other direction. Jun 23, 2015

Green Machine follows the slab just left of the chalk line shown on The Wave. Start on the hueco,but move right and follow the steepest part of the slab, I'm pretty sure its in the guide like that as well. Using anything positive out left has always been considered "off route" to my understanding. Its been a few years since I've been to LRC, but if I remember correctly, the line that moves left/straight up from the hueco and past the rails is rated a V1. Green Machine is a great steep slab problem! Jun 24, 2015
