Named for the wave like rock feature about 30 feet up. This route is alot of fun. It just keeps on coming at you. Begin by climbing up a vertical face, shopping around the many holds to a decent stance beneath the wave (an overhanging blank face with a bolt). Find a way to reach up and grab a jug and crank through the overhang on more jugs. Pull into a left facing corner with slabby feet. Another puzzle of small holds (crux, in my opinion) gains more jugs beneath another set of overhangs. Step right slightly and make a tough move through the overhangs into a left facing corner then up to a ledge. Continue up the black face about which probably goes at 5.8 but felt alot harder after 75' of climbing. Bolt anchors.


Right most bolt line on the Big Wall. There is a cave under huge boulders leaning against the cliff. This route starts just left of the cave.


Bolts...12 i think.

Very fun. Pumpy moves throughout, but well protected. Start off on a balancy face going into a crux roof section. Pull the roof and then another balancy section to another roof with great big holds that let you to lie back and "hang 10." There is another easier balancy face with some tricky footwork to finish.

Fun. Never desperate.
