Description

Climb up some awkward moves past a low first bolt. A cam will protect between the second to third bolts if so desired but the holds are chunky and some will do without it. Half way up the climb there is a large ledge and a chimney. Tidewater splits off to the right and another smaller cam will protect the leader before following up a line of bolts on the arete. The crux hits one or two bolts after the route splits off right from it's twin route, Wind Dummy, with a move or two that establishes the climber on the arete/face to the right.
A decent warmup and easiest climb at OH8.

Location

Begins 15 feet left of Sasquatch. Half way up the cliff face there's a ledge and a ravine, and the route splits into two. Follow the right bolt line that climbs the face/arete right next to Sasquatch.

Protection

Quickdraws and a couple pieces of gear: one cam or nut after the first bolt and another to protect the crux half way up. Anchors are bolted vertically with a chain connecting, and one rap ring.

I didn't feel like this route required gear to protect. The first bolt from the ledge (about half-way up) is a little run-out, but there are generous jugs in the crack. Apr 10, 2017
