Clip first bolt from the ground then start to the right on the obvious flake. Climb up and right to the some amazing jug cobbles. At the fourth bolt grab a very comfy knee bar on a tufa feature get everything back before makeing a powerful sprint through rad pockets, edges and drop knees to the anchor. This thing builds and Last move might get you. A lil dirty at the bottom but gets better at the third bolt. Steeper than it looks.


This route is up behind the wave wall to the right. It's the only route and it has fixed chains so Warm up at the ghetto or the wave wall. From the wave wall go left around the wall and follow a faint trail for about 4 minutes then you will see the steep route on the right.


8 bolts
Fixed chains
Lower off 2 chain anchors

Just tried this climb today. A bit chossy in the beginning but cleans up a lot as you go up. It's a trek to get up to-a lot of scrabbling. I did all the moves and just before the anchors it gets super burly and sick. Great climbing up high. I was wondering if anyone has FA'ed this yet. It's extremely convenient that all those perma draws are up. The climb just needs some traffic put into it. Good job whoever put this route up! I wanna go back and send.

Thanks I put the route up and FA'ed it. So happy ur psyched on it Joseph. Hope you go back and send. I actually did it with a harder start to left using a bad slopey hueco, then cleaned that flake off (not very well) to the right and decided that was a better start. You can still do the harder start but its about v5 or 6 right off the ground.
