Description Suggest change

On the right side of the "Dark Waters" problem by about 6-8 feet there is a nice two handed undercling feature located close to the cave's main right sided lip and an obvious break in the main roof section.

Start with both of your hands crimping the shallow undercling, and step your right foot up high into a nice heel-toe cam. From here, bust up and right to a nice rail of jugs (some use lower at your face level bump moves, these holds are optional).

From the good rail located out and above the two handed undercling, start traversing right on powerful jugs and crimps until you reach the end of the cave's logical and farthermost monster jug. Finish by simply putting your feet back on the ground.

For some extra pump, you can turn around and make a killer lip traverse all the way back to the left side of the cave finishing on "Dark Waters." It's a real arm pumper, and if you're looking for some powerful training mileage, this is one of the many cool option to try at "The New River Wall" bouldering cave.

The original problem moving right combined with the traverse back left finishing on "Dark Waters" is probably about (V9-V10). Maybe a little harder, but who cares, right...? This version is about the power pump.

Per Wade, the FA: start on the downstream side of the roof, two small underclings for the start in a crack, make a big move out left to the lip, then bump again to the flat jug, climb up and drop off or do the R rated topout.

Eds. This is a combination of 2 submissions onto the 1st submission's page.Adam bloc noted that the FA agrees this is same problem.

Location Suggest change

Located at the "New River Wall" bouldering wall area just before tunnel 2. It's the cave just down and left of "Sonic Youth." The line pulls from a two handed under cling feature located right of "Dark Waters" and fairly close to the cave's main roof lip section.

Per Wade, the FA: this is on the Dark Waters Roof.

Protection Suggest change

Pads and a spot.
