This route follows the obvious water-streak just right of Keep the Worm Firm. There's some 5.7/5.8 moves past the first couple bolts, and then very easy friction climbing all the way to the anchors. It's a fun and well protected climb on clean rock.


Several bolts to a 2 bolt anchor/rappel.

FA Todd Gordon, Jesse, Tucker Tech, Tim Pinar, Brett Pinar. We rated the climb 5.7, but 5.8 is close enough for me......(great shot of the slab and routes, Bryan....)
