DescriptionFollow bolts in the beautiful water groove on the SE face. Consistent climbing on great rock with great protection leads to a small bulge and the crux near the last bolt. The last 30 feet is slightly easier, but quite thin and unprotected.
Cindy Tolle and Pete DeLannoy took turns drilling bolts on lead with a Bosch. After drilling the last bolt, Pete thought that there would be a bomber hand hold above from which he could drill an additional bolt, which turned out to be false.
A great view of climbers on this route can be had from the summit of the Hitching Post or the Thimble.
