Mark Buntaine under the roof at the top of "Surfing the River."


Start behind the tree in the tapering gap and follow the wide jagged crack line up and left to a small right-facing corner.

Continue up as the corner switches sides then take the diagonal finger crack across and up left. Surmount the same roof feature as "Give Back My Walls" then work your way under and left of the roof near the top. The original line has the same top out as "What Dumbasses," but you can also finish straight up past the dead oak stump. Walking off to climber's left and down the gully is faster than rapping from the stations.

"Surfing" climbs that left-facing corner up and around/under the roof at the top left. A fun kind of awkward.

Protection 

A rack of singles to 4" and a few extra finger pieces if you want to sew it up. (Pink, red & brown tri-cams and/or some offset nuts work well, too.)
