This route is in the center of the face, facing the river. Look for an obvious roofline about 25 feet off the deck. Hydro electric turns this roof at its left/ downstream end. Climb the thin seam that leads directly to left end of roof. A couple of pieces of gear small to medium gets you up to a bolt and some Hard moves, a second bolt protects a hard move around the roof. Clip another bolt and follow the same seam up a steep face and another bolt. At the top of seam the crack gets wide enough to place a cam in the .4-.5 range. One more bolt protects some slab moves to,the two bolt anchor. Great climb!


Single rope rappel


Mixed bolts and gear in the small to medium range. Two bolt anchor on top.
