DescriptionNothing to do with World War 2 rockets. Standing at the belay stance at the beginning of Crazy Woman Driver and looking up and right at about the angle that a "V" makes, there appeared to the two of us what looked like a nice line.
This is probably the easiest, best protected climb to the top of the Perfect Wave Slab.
P1 - [P1, of course, has been done numerous times in the past] Scramble up the 12-15 ft wall to achieve the ledge at the base of Tsunami [some might want to belay this 15 ft] Climb up and right on very easy rock (5.2?) 50-60 ft to the belay at the start of Crazy Woman Driver, "CWD" [is the same P1 belay for Super Slab] 80-90 ft 5.2 +/-
P2 - Step right onto the slab and climb brushed rock on a 20-25-degree diagonal to the right (right of the tiny pine tree, CWD goes left of the tree), following 4 bolts and an optional Pink tricam in a hole (and a red tricam in a hole just next to it). At the 4th bolt either move up and left at a 45-degree angle for 35-40 ft to a double bolt anchor, or run out 5.2 to 5.0 to the top. 125 ft 5.6 - 5.6+
Descent - From the double bolt anchor on the left, Rap with a single 60m rope to the CWD/Super Slab belay or, if you've gone to the top, move 50 ft left to the double-rope rap of Cruise Control.
NOTE: If you don't have a 70m rope, or two ropes, then you MUST return to the Tsunami ledge as the rap directly down to the ground from the CWD/Super Slab P1 belay is 33 meters and a single 60m rope leaves you far short of the ground.
