An overhanging dihedral with somewhat desperate finger locks but great stems, leading to deep jamming as the angle eases.


On Buzzards East face, left of the imposing dihedral (Fear of Flying) is this minor dihedral with tree's up top.


small to medium cams

As of 3-18-2017: There is evidence of a lot of fresh rock fall near the base of this, including 3 big scars on the tree immediately back from the start. I think the rocks must have come off up and to the left. IE somewhere between Aquatic Anxiety and Shrike, but closer to Aquatic Anxiety. Not sure if this was from weather, growing tree routes, animals, humans, etc...

While we were near Fear of flying a few smaller pebbles came down spontaneously too, so it may not be completely stable up there yet. Perhaps someone should rap in from the top and trundle any remaining blocks that are ready to go before anyone tries to get on Aquatic Anxiety again...

I believe chris spells his last name "rowins" if its the same climber from north carolina.

Definitely not 60' tall. More like 30-40' at most.

Finally got to this thing when it was dry (likely the reason for it's name). Great moves and finger locks after the tricky start. Starts hard and eases up every step of the way. Not a route to be afraid of if its dry- get it!
