Jimbo on the FA.


This route is long with a distinct crux. Despite its broken appearance the climbing is fun even when it gets easier. The long length and feeling of exposure as you move through the steep sections make this one a real treat.


This climb is the second one right of the waterfall and climbs the main strength of the wall.

Takes 13 quickdraws, not including the anchor. I do think it was probably easier at one point. There is a section that is pretty bare and you can see that a lot of of the rock has chipped off. This is a 2 star route if the waterfall is dry or small but when the waterfall is really flowing, this is a 4-star route IMO. Climbing right next to a flowing waterfall is one of the most memorable climbing experiences I've had.

Pulled off two holds climbing this last - a solid foot and hand about 2/3 of the way up. Could increase the difficulty... Route gets a good amount of waterfall spray when there's been a few substantial rains.

Waterfall was running today and the crows were buzzing overhead all day. Fun climb that stays consistently at the grade.
