Description

This is probably the left-most route that's unquestionable over-water on Bumpa Wall. Highly varied climbing with multiple cruxes. Easier terrain near the top but degrading rock quality keep the fear-factor up as you top out. This route is tall enough to hurt you. But all the cruxes are below about the 50' mark.

The first crux is getting out of the water. The shorter you are the harder it is. There's a left variation that's more strenuous but easier technically. Follow the left-facing corner/arete to the first major ledge. Traverse left along a prominent undercling to another good ledge. From there continue straight up the crack. This is probably the technical and mental crux, and you're pretty high. But after 3-4 moves things get easier. Keep your cool as the rock falls apart but the climbing gets easy.

Location

Swim left of Bumpa Crack until you hit a roof that becomes a left-facing corner and prominent arete. Start at a decent right hand about 1 foot above high-tide line just left of and below this arete. Stand up into the corner.
