Route starts in very back of the gully between Shipyard Rock and Hornet's Nest. Enter the gully from the base of the Classic Waves route. This route, as well as the other routes in this gully all share the same anchors at the top of pitch 1 of Classic Waves. You can turn any of these routes into a multi-pitch by continuing up the 2nd pitch (5.7) of Classic Waves.
