This breathtaking problem begins seated on the right of the horizontal roof on a flat shelf. It then moves over the water on jugs fora thrilling top out on a good sloper. A variation (V1) begins standing using a high crimp over the water. The moves are reversible but carefully take a moment to spot your landing.


None. Try not to fall in the calm pool below. There is a large rock right underneath the finishing jugs that is only about waist deep so make sure to spot your landing before you take a dip!

[Hide Comment] Very nice and short video. Thanks Kyle.

Is the water deep enough though to safely fall into? Aug 14, 2018

[Hide Comment] Jon Nelson - Just went in August and while I wouldnt dive in I would say its pretty safe. With that said, I'd be amazed to see someone fall off this thing. Its very casual. Like V0 or V1 casual Aug 26, 2020

[Hide Comment] @Mike Brady I would say that's dependent on if you can find feet. I just campused the whole problem more or less and while that didn't feel terribly difficult for me, I think if you were a legit V3 climber, campusing might feel hard and options for your feet do exist, but can be hard to find in the heat of the moment.

[Hide Comment] @zachary Drive down the Miller River gravel road till’ you find the broken bridge, from there, hike up the road about 20 minutes till’ you see a tree with a pink ribbon on your right, follow the faint and steep trail downhill till’ you hit the river, cross underneath a broken tree on your left with another pink ribbon, then take a right and cross 2 logs over the water. From here take a left and follow the faint trail about 5 minutes then when things open up, cross the river on your right and you’re in.
