Description

Lower-angled water streak with smooth features. Kind of like Tuolumne slab climbing -- bolts are sparsely placed. Crux is above fourth bolt.

Location

Follow the Balconies trail from the westside parking lot and cross about five footbridges. Just before the sixth, there will be a climber access sign for the 'Destiny Wall' (Destiny is another name for this route). Turn right and head up a climber's trail. There is a fallen old gray pine near the base which makes a convenient bench.

Descend by rappel.

Protection

Four bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

An "R" rating? I didn't think it was that run-out. Well protected by Pinnacles standards. Sep 2, 2012

Not "R", PG-13 MAYBE. Solid rock, great stemming, fun warm-up. I agree with Chinos, crux was above last bolt, adding a little spice! Mar 1, 2015
