Climb straight up from the anchor through double cracks to a shallow roof. Step over the roof following a crack to a good stance below an arete. Step right and ascend the thin crack on to the face. At the first bolt move left and climb the arete past two more bolts to the anchors.
The upper bolted section of this line is shared with the route "Waters Edge".
Behind the route name - a few years back a group of 3 climbers, who shall remain unnamed for now, were exploring the west face of Beacon for route potential. This was during the South Face closure period which they felt did not include the west face area. The park rangers however, interpreted the situation differently and after spotting the climbers up one pitch, called out over a bull horn for the climbing to cease and the climbers to return to the ground. A bit of shenanigans ensued and one of the climbers was caught and arrested. After showing up for his day with the judge his was granted leniency and fortunately climbers now have access to the west face year round.
