Description

Riviera is a line of strength up the steep bulging right sector of Waimea. Wild, technical, and bouldery, a send of Riviera is certainly a proud one. A must climb for the V9 boulderer.

Start by making a huge leap to the first hold of the route- a jug that needs to pinched quite hard to control the swing. From here, heel hooks and a big lockoff allows access to a big jug and a stance to clip the second draw. Here's where the business begins: Launch out right into the corner, using heel hooks and unimaginably poor (and sharp) crimps, finally gaining access to an awful sloping fin. Make a couple more moves out right, gaining some better holds, and finish up the 5.11ish romp to the chains.
