Description

A fun line and good change of pace with some steeper than average climbing for the area. Expect typical run outs on easier terrain but to find good gear where the climbing becomes more difficult.

Start up a pocketed orange streak of rock and basically plumb line it straight through two overlaps trending right at the top to a cluster of maples. Belay and rap off.

Location

Far right side of the perfect wave slab look for the overlaps and a natural starting stone below the orange streak.

Did this today, although 2nd OH/OLap proved a bit too strenuous, so we did a variant to the right: climbing along the 1st OLap to gain the flake that the 2nd OH/Olap turns into. Up this, then stepping back left onto the slab and gaining the anchor that way. Done this way probably 5.6R/X (for some of the friction moves) and 5.7 or so at the step back.

First OH/Olap about 5.8 / 5.8+ Oct 7, 2016
