Description

Slightly longer bolted line in the middle of the Hippo wall. Very well protected as with most of the climbs on this wall. Thin start up past the first bolt then sustained climbing up edges and incuts for the majority of the route. Generally trending just slightly right easing toward the top. Shares anchor with Flood (5.8)

You can technically rap from this anchor diagnally down and right to the elevated platform at the base of Trauma dogs/Fresno with a few inches to spare on a 60m rope. But you would be unable to top-rope this route on a 60 unless you were to extend the anchor way down.

Location

15 feet down and left of Trauma Dogs.

Protection

Bolts (think 7 or 8, can't remember for sure), bolted belay/rap station.
