Climb a wide crack through a roof, right of the Wave.


Basic, fat gear.

This thing is really, really fun. Sure, it's short, has quite forgettable climbing to top out, some questionable flakes down low, and some gardening at the start, but the actual OW roof is killer fun. Pulling the lip has some wild moves if you're on the shorter side. For gear, a single #5 and #6 or 2 #6s protect the roof, but bring some small-medium stoppers for the finish. It's easy but worth protecting as the rock is still cleaning up. A few finger-hand sized pieces are useful to build a gear anchor at the top. The follower can rap from the anchors on top of Wave Goodbye.
