This two pitch slab route ascends the black water streak just about 10m looker's left of the route Here And Terror. The granite is very compact and climber friendly. Nice introduction to Spitzkoppe slab climbing.

Pitch #1: Climb up the water streak where it steepens to the first bolt and follow the groove until you reach a two-bolt belay. 35m, 5.7.

Pitch #2: Follow the bolts making route finding obvious to a flat ledge and two bolt belay. 30m, 5.7.

Walk off down to the Old Graves Site campsite.

Location

On the south side of the Old Graves Site Slab. This is immediately to the left of Here And Terror.
