BETA PHOTO: Slippery When Wet


P1: Crux pitch. The bottom feels a bit harder than 5.7, but it quickly eases up as you get higher. Use caution going for the 3rd bolt as there are some ledges below.
P2: Fun climbing on horizontal cracks. Some gear can be used to supplement the bolts in the runouts.
P3: Similar to Pitch 2. Gear can supplement the bolts to keep the climber from potentially hitting the ledge.


Central on the main wall, between "The Streak" and "You'll Understand When You Get There".


Each pitch has an anchor with chains for rappelling.

A set of nuts and a few smaller tricams for the shallow horizontal cracks.
