Description

'In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree...'
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

This route got its name from the pure waters that flow at its base from the rainy season until mid-may or so. The waters are filtered through the sacred stone of the diamond area. The stoke will get you warm and fired up for the rest of your Rattletale adventures.

Step over the fountain into semi awkward start with a bonus #6 placement for kicks, and lead into an awesome low angle tight #4 crack.

Gain the ledge, face-y climbing leads to the crux, finish with stellar jams to the fat double nine links that await you at the top.

Squamish sending optional tree beta if desired!

Location

The route is left of the Wasp and the Amphibian.

Protection

Single Rack from BD #.1-4
Smaller nuts protect the crux nicely

Thanks Jon! We're really stoked on trying to get some easier stuff up, for warming up, and so softies like me have stuff to lead! Jul 19, 2017

I'm with you on getting the easier stuff up. They are usually much, much more work to clean off, but way more of us can enjoy them.

Am looking forward to seeing more. Thanks for the work- Jul 19, 2017

It is a fine little route and we reckoned it to be ~5.7-5.8. A bit too short for 'classic' status I think, but still buckets of fun at the grade! Thanks for the effort! Aug 22, 2017

Thanks for taking the time to clean this, definitely worth doing. 2.5 star route with a 5 star name = 3 stars in my opinion! Jun 27, 2018
