DescriptionThis is a great, hard-but-not-impossible toprope from the Burly Dudes' anchor. Begin just to the right of the small staging area at the base of Burly Dudes and immediately step up into difficult, thin climbing on good but small edges and some hopeful smearing. After about 50 feet or so, the climbing gets less steep and eases off in difficulty.
LocationThis route is the 6th route from the left on the north-facing Grey Wave Wall, or 3rd bolted line from the right. Scramble up the rock gully and begin just to the right of the best staging area. You can rap from the anchors (2 ropes, bring webbing and rings) or walk off to the left along a ledge system.
ProtectionTop rope from bolted anchor (old buttonheads/Stardryvens, bring webbing and rings) at the top of Burly Dudes. Be sure to keep a tight belay as the crux is sustained climbing at the bottom and there is a lot of rope out, even if you are belaying from the top.
