Liquid Nylon climbs a prominent 80 foot buttress just left of Dirty Dancing. It follows a crack/dihedral feature that angles just slightly right. Tricky moves bring you to the crux at about 35 feet. Once through the crux, jam your way up the short handcrack over a bulge/block to a ledge at the 50 foot level. From here jump....or steel yourself and traverse left a little and continue climbing up the exposed headwall another 25 feet to the top of the wall. Although it's clean air to the creek, falling from this final headwall would be painful, and possibly injurious. The climbing is only about 5.8 and is pretty secure. To get down, scramble back down to the ledge at the top of the dihedral and take the reasonable jump from there.


Just to the left(downstream) of Dirty Dancing on the tall and pretty buttress. Another route - Kevlar Dingaling - climbs the wall left of Liquid Nylon and finishes on the same ledge at the 50 foot level.
