Description

This is the quintessential water groove route at Stone Mountain and like the guide book says...if your heart ain't racing and you ain't having fun...you must be dead.

Start from the very left edge of the Tree Ledge. Look for the second water groove past the Great Arch.

Pitch 1: Climb the water groove on the left side past 2 bolts, then step into the groove and climb past 2 more bolts to the anchor at a stance on the left of the groove. 5.9, 110 feet.

Pitch 2: Ready to get your groove on? Climb up the deepening groove past one bolt to another anchor on the left side of the groove. 5.8, 110 feet.

Pitch 3: Continue up the groove for 50 feet to the trees. 5.6, 50 feet.

Location

Left edge of the Tree Ledge...second water groove...mmm....goood....

Protection

Take 4 quickdraws and something for the bolted belays...that is all you will need.
