Description 

Step up and left from the Juniper Ledge, and begin climbing upwards through broken cracks, good holds, and some loose rocks. Your belayer should be out of the way for any rockfall. Trend left towards the arête, but then traverse back right for a better finish.

Location 

This route is featured on the far left (North) of Crimson Tide Wall. Walk along the top of the wall past the Tequila Sunrise anchors and towards the arête. Either build an anchor in the giant horizontal crack and rap to the Juniper Ledge or rap from Tequila Sunrise's anchors to the ledge.

Protection 

We used a juniper for an anchor at the base and placed about 4 cams along the way. Built a solid 2 point anchor in a horizontal crack at the top of the climb. Also, we had a third cam backing it up from a separate crack. The top is pretty chossy. Bring a light rack with gear to #3.

This climb is all right if you are looking for something easy. The protection is good, and the most difficult move is near the top. I used 4 cams for the top anchor, and the top is not too chossy.
