Description

This is an amazing DWS. It starts low down by the water on a sloper rail and very poor feet that are slippery from the water. Do a few bouldery moves to the crux where you have get a high foot and then stretch to get next sloper. Match on the sloper work you feet up and top out. Super Fun!!!

Location

This route is on the north end of the pool where everyone cliff jumps. There are two bolts used for slack lining at the top. Belay down from the bolts to the start. We tied in using a carabiner then detached at start.

Protection

Deep, cold water.

I am pretty sure I did the FA of this, but never reported it or named it. I recall doing the the route before the bolts were put in, about 3 to 4 years prior. I just jumped in with shoes on and climbed out, with out chalk, took about 8 tries. I also soloed a few harder lines to the right, in the 12s. Jul 4, 2011
