Description

A wild and exposed climb up a deep waterchute. Has everything from easy stemming up a halfpipe to overhanging face climbing. As the chute widens there are good rests, as it narrows there are exciting mantels. And a squeeze at the top.

Rock quality is good at the center of the route, but rock (if it can be called that) can be quite loose to the sides (careful when stemming). Belayer definitely needs a helmet.

Protection

5 bolts, bolted anchor. Small gear can be used below the first bolt.

The new bolts certainly added to my confidence! I added the FA info. Jan 26, 2014

It might be worth the few minutes it takes to list the first ascent party:

First ascent by John Barbella and Jim McConachie, May 1986.

Also worth mentioning is Jim's rebolting effort of two years ago. He replaced all of the old bolts (including a scary, scary 1/4" first bolt) with all 1/2" stainless steel bolts. Imagine the work that that took. The hardware he put in was provided by the A.S.C.A. Jan 17, 2014
