Description

For a short route, it delivers some good pump and fun moves.

Start up from the sand bar in the river on coarse-grained "good enough" rock on underclings leading into the right-trending seam/crack past two bolts. Past the second bolt the rock gets much better. Climb up the highly-featured, super cool, overhanging face and corner to anchors at the top of the corner.

Location

The route starts on the right side of the undercut cave on a sand bar (if you're lucky--this portion of the river often changes shape with sediment fluctuation.) 

Protection

Four brown-painted bolts to a two-bolt anchor with lowering biners.
