Description

Dam The Water Board climbs a slab to a large ledge, then follows flakes and crack to an anchor. The only bolt is approximately 20 feet off the ground, and if you come off before the ledge, you may be grounding. Above the ledge protects fairly well. Snark Hunt to the left offers a safer lead, but it is harder.

Mr. Hubbel shows a right variation. It did not seem any harder this way, but you are definitely grounding if you come off going this way.

Location

See the photo. Dam The Water Board lies between Snark Hunt on the left and No Bore A Bora on the right. To descend, rap from anchor (60m works). If toproping, you will have to rap from trees at the top to the Dam The Water Board anchor.

Protection

1-bolt & light rack.

Getting to the first bolt on this would not be a good place to fall. You will have a ground fall if you do. You would not want to fall near the ledge either but it is unlikely if you got past the bolt. In places like Boulder Canyon there would be a bolt before this routes only bolt.
If top roping there are no trees to rap from as stated in the description. You can rap from the "Above the .11" anchor and move right as you descend to get to this anchor. Oct 28, 2015
