Description

Just to be different...this is a link-up of Interrogation through its 8th bolt (last stainless bolt) and finishing on Waterboarding. Perhaps someone had done this prior to my ascent? Just seems like a logical line to me....

Withstand all of the cruxes of Interrogation, but instead of forcing the last "hard right" move and clipping its 9th bolt follow the obvious weaknesses up and left via incipient cracks. Get a good rest and finish on Waterboarding's final crux through the black groovy bulge. In my opinion, this is an interesting and more continuous version of Interrogation.

Protection

12 pre-existing bolts.

Possibly bring an optional thin hand piece (compared to the rest of the climbing it is a bit spicy (but not too hard) if you don't get gear in the link, but I did not have a rack when I led it).

Perhaps the most logical and fun line of the three - skip the chossy start of Waterboarding and the contrived finish of Interrogation. It would be better with a bolt protecting the traverse. Mar 10, 2014
