Often overlooked, as it is an extension to a trad pitch and overshadowed by its big brother 5.14s and the very popular and accessible 5.10 sport route Waimea, this is one of the earliest routes on Waimea and is a great line, well deserving of attention

If you have gear (up to 4") head up the '"interesting" That Crack 10a, or climb up the sport route Great White 13a, just to the right. If you don't have gear, but want to keep the start easier, with some rope finagling you could do Waimea 10d and traverse left.
Once you are at the Great White/That Crack anchors, extend with a long sling or two to reduce drag and stem left into the corner. Commit to the undercling flake arching out left which takes you out above the overhanging arete of Liven' Astro. Small fingers are nice for the undercling and a little reach is nice too, so big and small even out the difficulty.


Towards the left side of Waimea Cliff, up and left of the route Waimea and right of Livin' Astro.


Trad gear for That Crack (up to 4") or quickdraws and slings for one of the alternative sport routes. 4 more bolts protect the flake to bolted anchors. Make sure you extend with slings from the mid anchor so you don't have any rope drag up high.
