BETA PHOTO: Route Description with bolt and anchor placements


Start route off big rock in the lower pool. Doing the Splits across the water will be your first Crux. Climb right into dihedral over the water and follow a left leaning seam to a steep roof. Bolts get progressively run-out after the 5th bolt. Climb left side of roof through good holds and finish straight above the roof on a slab.

It's safer to Rap from the top to anchor right under the roof and then back to rock. Make sure to clip one strand of rope back into fixed draws for pulling the rope.


Route is located on the far most right side of Failsafe wall. Look for obvious "Thumb-print" looking roof.


8 Bolts. Bots 5,3,1 are fixed for keeping your rope dry when pulling.
