DescriptionBoulder up and balance onto a steep stance. Stretch to place your first piece(s) into the bottom of the left-slanting diagonal crack that curves into and above the corridor. Reaching the good part of that initial diagonal rail seems height and reach dependent. If you have to make an intermediate move or two up the steep face with no feet (without using the back wall), definitely harder and headier. Stemming off the back wall would make it much easier, of course.
Location & DescentLocated on the right side of the corridor to adjacent right of Just Another New Wave Route.
Easier to walk off by getting over to the top of Just Another New Wave Route to climber's left, then continue westward to scramble off. Also possible to go over the top to climber's right and down the east talus slope past Popeye, but would take longer and involve couple of tunneling.
