Description 

Up a white slab to finish on an overhanging dark dihedral. Crux in the upper half of the slab. (I've given it a ratng of 5.12a - not because I believe that number is correct, but because the crux was too hard for me.)

In the 4th edition of the print guidebook by Marty Lewis, this line is labeled "Unknown" and given no rating.

Just to its right is another climb (not in the print guidebook) following crack/corner system which has some bolts. Then to the right of that climb is "All Work No Spray".

I'm posting this route not because I know it well, but to inspire someone else who does know to clarify the name and creator and difficulty -- and clarify which line is which on left half of the North face sector of Stream Wall.

Hopefully that person will take over "ownership" and make this Description page what it should be.

Location 

Left-most bolt line on the North face sector of Stream Wall.

Protection 

Bolts up to two-bolt top anchor.

I tried to climb this line on Top-Rope, using as my top anchor some long slings attached to a gnarly tree (obviously visible from the ground) above the route. The line slants a little, so I placed a couple of directionals as I rapped down.

After an easier "warmup" start, got into some interesting thoughful face/slab climbing. But then I reached a section that was too hard for me. So I yarded up past that and finished up the dark overhang -- which was interesting, but not the crux.
