Description Suggest change

I can't say I have seen better rock. Start with pulling on your rope (A0) until you get up and established on this beauty. Start with some interesting moves around the corner to the left and up. Utilize flat edge crimps mixed with sandpaper like rock until you are faced with some long moves to a classic NRG flat jug and sidepull/undercling. Use the holds just mentioned or find an alternative small crimp and go for it and figure out how to use all of the feet and get established up on a heinous micro crimp. Hold on, bust a move and clip the anchors.

For historical purpose, it should be noted that this line was originally enjoyed as a deep water solo, and still is, many years before being bolted. And ironically enough, it's one of few routes at the Lake that is only "free" climbable when the water is up :) 

Location Suggest change

Walk climber's left past Big Bang, and you will past a beautiful white arete/face with two lines going up it. After that you will shortly come a low roof with single bolt on it. The route starts here and goes left around the arete. Lower down.

Protection Suggest change

6 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor
