Description 

Starting directly off the boulder that leans onto Shipwreck. This route is accessable all year long as it sits just above the high water line of the river. A difficult boulder problem opens the route to ever easier terrain leading to the anchors. The top half is made up of broken ledges so be careful in the spring after the freeze thaw cycles could losen some of the ledges.

Originally given 5.12d, repeaters have found an easier way though the crux that may not be obvious on first glance. Take this grade with a grain of salt.

Location 

On the south west arete of Shipwreck Rock that faces the falls. Begin off of the boulder.

Protection 

Bolts to Anchor. Stick clip highly recomended.
