Description

Sleeping with the Fish is a somewhat forced line to the left of the left-facing dihedral on Big Tears. The climbing is quite pumpy and devious for the orginal grade of 10+. There is a large, detached block above the 4th bolt (crux) that should keep you thinking.

Location

The rightmost sport line on the east face on the upper ledge system.

Protection

6 bolts....
