A hard to spot line, Surfing the Orgasmic Wave climbs a dark water streak past a few bolts over thin and dicey terrain.

Starting low in a crop of boulders, climb up to a small ledge and gain an awkward broken flake. Follow this feature to a difficult to hold stance. Break hard right over a blank and cryptic face to join the remaining and more climbable slab.
Climb straight up over thin edges and shallow pockets to a chain anchor. Consistent, Continuous, and Unforgiving! Classic City of Rocks.


On the north side of the Heartbreaker buttress, Surfing the Orgasmic Wave climbs the right most line of green painted bolts. The start is easily found by locating a small tree on the middle most ledge.


Five or six bolts to a chain anchor.
