Description

An amazingly delicate slab with nice stances at the bolts.

Just left of the water streak/groove is a protrusion of cool crimps, edges, and smears. Do some moderate moves to get to the high first bolt. Start into the sustained technical upper section. At each bolt you are rewarded with a great stance. When the climbing gets steep, make a tricky crux move to gain the more positive face above. Head to the same bolted anchor on Dry Line. Easily top roped, but for full value, lead it!

Location

When you reach the base of the Watergroove Wall, turn left and head up the wet gulley. When you turn right back to the wall and step over a small boulder and log, the climb is directly in front of you.

Protection

QD's for bolts. 60m will get you down from the two-bolt anchor.
