Description3rd pitch is the beauty, 1st pitch is the beast. The second pitch just connects the two.
P1 - Start with a couple of fun, overhanging moves out the left side of the cave, then easier climbing on sharp rock up the buttress. This is also the first pitch of "The Wave." There are two anchors at the top of P1... "Beauty" is on the right and "The Wave" is on the left.
P2 - Go up and sightly right - don't be lured by other bolts going further right.
P3 - This pitch is fun and follows bolts up into a small ledge at a small cave. Don't stop there though. From the top, traverse out left, wiggle through a hole in the cave, then finish up on the last 2 pitches of "The Wave." This finish slightly raises the grade, but dramatically increases the fun.
+++In 2006, Drew Spaulding and Adam Weiner established a 4th pitch above the "Beauty" pitch, but is not well equipped with out TRAD. gear. Climb up into the corner on gear, threads and a few bolts. Then tunnel up right and under the stalactite umbrella up to the bolted anchor (this pitch needs re-bolting). A wild ride!
