Description [Edit]

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.

Location [Edit]

Right side of the Undertow wall 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.

Protection [Edit]

Bolts (6 or 7?) to quick clips
