The wall’s namesake route – fun, with a great finish. Straight forward climbing leads past two bolts to the small roof. Pull through the roof (crux), stand up, search for the plentiful holds above, and clip the third bolt. Angle right past one additional bolt where a big, sloping hold leads to the anchors.


Located a couple routes to the right of Water Ballet, look for a small roof about 3/4 of the way up the route.


Four bolts to anchors.

Amazing route! Great movement. The crux is gaining the anchor.

the first bolt might look a little high but the climbing is easy. this is a good straight-forward 10b/c if you're waiting for your first onsight at the grade.
