Description

There is a low crux and a higher crux. The jugs are too much fun. It is better to clip a long sling to the second bolt. Additionally, it is useful for the belayer to have Tevas (standing in the stream is a better belay for the bottom bolts).

Location

Look for the light and dark streaks a little right of the hard routes where the stream is narrow. One can step from a rock to a good shelf where the climb begins.

Protection

Bolts to anchor and chains. Rap the route but give the rope a good jerk to keep it out of the water.

Fun route and cool holds that will certainly get better as it cleans up. I added lowering biners to the chains. Hope that's cool, Karl. Jun 29, 2012

Thanks Jason, we did not have the exact lengths of chain. Enjoy the shady side. Jun 30, 2012

Route gets better everytime i'm on it. Seems that there is two ways of going about it after the second bolt. Either stay on the light colored rock which is 9+ or head onto the black rock which is 9/9- in my opinion. Great route, thanks for setting it up! Sep 16, 2012

Crux is to the second bolt. I went left, but to the right is also a good option.
Be careful of a ground fall here.
Super fun climbing above 2nd bolt with so many great flakes and variations.
Wish it was longer. Jun 15, 2014
