Description

Take the Plunge is a nice direct way up to the next anchor left of Comales Tamale. Jay's book shows 4 different routes reaching this anchor, this is the leftmost of these options. It's presumably named for the springtime starting conditions... in the creek.

Start just left of the black streak, boulder through a steep bulge off the ground (crux). Enter a shallow right-facing corner with two cracks. These cracks turn into seams as the difficulty eases.

Location

Take the Plunge is the leftmost line leading to the 2-bolt anchor left of Comales Tamale on the Water Wall; it goes up just left of the Black Streak.

Protection

Nuts and cams to 2".
2-bolt anchor with chains at the top.
