surf it


After a bit of a boulder start, mount the huge flake that is sticking straight out of the wall. At this no hands rest you have to pretend you are surfing. Pull a couple of powerful moves to the chains.


6 or 7 bolts

I LOVE this route. The "surf board" is kind of mind blowing

The features on this route are quite spectacular, although to attain the 5.10 rating you will have to climb about 4-5 feet left of the bolt line at the start, while climbing on the obvious blunt arête on top of the bolts requires some pretty solid 5.11 manuavers. So bring a stick clip for the first two bolts or convince your buddy to go first and clean off the start with a wire brush (the moss grows back fast on this line!).
