This is a short route that starts in the short corner under a little roof right of Red Tide. Really fun and tempting movements if you don't mind getting a bit sandy down below. Lose yourself and go with the flow. This line might not be the whole deal just by itself, considering the other options in this area, but it gets you going and ready for all that action. The direct finish going left on the last bolt ads about a number grade of difficulty.

From the anchor you have the possibility of linking up with the higher section of Red Tide and get a little more of that warming action. Another great option is to take a rack with you and move right into Fire Dancer. This is a much better start for that line and makes an excellent pitch of 5.11 gear climbing.


Start two feet right of Red Tide, and moves diagonally right from there.


You need a 0.5-0.75 BD cam to start. Five bolts thereafter to the anchor.
