Description 

Woooo! This thing is a BEAST. Start as deep in the cave as possible, and just start shuffling along.
Awkward toe-heel camming arm stretching shoulder popping hand/finger locking desperation. Top out to the left of the cave.

Required a good deck brushing to remove the dust and grime upon my last visit, but with a little commitment this thing could totally go.

I've gotten close, but I can't quite connect the moves. It feels like it's at LEAST a V7, but feels similar to V9-V10's I've been on.

Will someone please do this!?!?

Location 

On the opposite of the boulder that makes up the north wall of the corridor, only accessible/dry when water is at its lowest. November is the best time.

(note: Last time we visited, someone had built a fire ring directly under this. We spent a half hour moving all the rocks and wood. If you come up on something similar, please also take the time to preserve the rock here. fire = death to boulders)

Protection 

About 3-4 pads and a spotter at the end would be sufficient.
