A mega-classic and unusual for the area (and limestone climbing in general). Tanker Wave takes the left-facing, left-leaning sharp arete that divides the upper terrace of the Anti-Theme Wall (see Location section) from the main sector. This is a stunning feature that climbs as well as it looks.

Begin right of the arete and climb through some burly reaches on good pockets to gain a stance just underneath the arete. A tricky and wild sequence gets you up onto the arete which is then followed all the way to the anchors.

This route alone is worth the trip to the wall.


On the Anti-Theme Wall (the wall just right of the Wailing Wall). It is most easily approached directly up the hillside from the wash. If you're lucky you'll stumble upon bits of an overgrown, washed out trail but don't be surprised if you are mostly hoofing it cross country. The Anti-Theme Wall can also be approached by a somewhat circuitous via ferrata of fixed lines from the rightmost edge of the Wailing Wall (allow 5-10 minutes and wear your harness).


9-10x bolts plus anchors.
