Description 

just to the right of the warm up wall lies the streaked wall. this beautiful white wall lies directly above the aqueduct pipe and has 3 routes. the rightmost route, climbing up through a crack/seam feature is premature ecrackulation.

begin up the mellow crack for 2 or 3 bolts as the climbing gradually gets more difficult. the crack gets pesky and the face features get pretty small as you battle up to the base of the bulge. a leftward traverse on good holds merges this route into the route to the left. from here, big sharp pockets and some hefty cranking get you through the bulge to the anchors.

you can also go more straight up through the bulge, clipping the bolts out left. the holds are less sharp this way, but the rope angles awkardly under your feet and could be a tripping/flipping hazard.

very good route on nice rock.

Location 

this is the rightmost route of the 3 routes on the streaker wall panel. there is a steel lid cover on the aqueduct below it, which is a useful landmark. it starts in a minor crack system and ultimately goes up and left through the bulge at the top.

Protection 

approximately 8 bolts and open shuts at the anchors. this one has a little bit of a sporty feel to it, but not unsafe.
