Description

Crux is almost exactly midway up the face, right after getting off a prominent ledge on the lower half of the face. There is some hollow rock on the lower part of the face and the left and right sides, so don't stray from the line. The crux consists of a gastonian crimp on the seam of a dihedral. Uncontrolled falls here would be sketchy because of the ledge below that protrudes. Deep water surrounds the crag but its not overhung angles that are ideal for DWS so get a nice kick off the rock if you're not feeling it

Location

You can either traverse from right to left and reach the middle of the base of rock, or swim up and start out of the water. Climb the arete directly up to the ledge, watch hollow rock. The line is pretty distinct from the ledge up, a protruding flake and some meek hand holds are chalked directly overhead if you're on the right side of the ledge.

Protection

None, Deep Water Solo
