The wall's namesake route. Good but not great. A thin and powerful boulder problem above the third bolt is the routes hardest move, but expect the middle section to be quite sustained and shoulder intensive. Small feet and a flurry of thin crimps, shallow pockets and underclings make this this route technical and powerful- it feels hard for 12c. A great rest is found before the final bouldery moves that lead to the anchor. It seemed the chains were placed in a bad spot...I had to clip them from way left of the anchor leaning off a left hand pocket with small feet and a lot of body tension. Some holds have been chipped or enhanced.


Right side of the Undertow wall immediately right of Kleenex (but not the farthest right route), start off the left side of the big hollow flake (chest high) standing on the log to reach a high starting pocket with the left hand.


Bolts (6 or 7?) to quick clips
