Climb up a white crack feature. Then bust left on cool compression moves. Follow nice in cut horizontals (Gunks-like!) to a definitive crux. Move up and left to the anchor. The top is a little chossy off the bolt line!


This is the leftmost route of right cluster of routes at the "Flood Wall".

This route is still a little rough around the edges (some loose-ish rock and munge), but the climbing is superb and varied. The crux is a real puzzle—and it's still quite tough even after you've worked it out, because of the pump. A worthy challenge.

Markedly easier than its neighbor to the right.
At least one toaster-size block that shifts underfoot.
Would be wise to have your belayer off to the side.
