Description 

This route starts up a low angle water groove that eventually ends in a large 3 foot pod. From here, clip the first and only bolt, then trend right to the broken corner system where you can place a solid nut, and move up and left towards the summit crack placing gear along the way. This is a fun, moderate lead that would be good for the newer trad leader.

There are no anchors. Bring a long cord to build 2 piece anchor at the top.

Location 

It is located 15 feet to the right of Valley Girl at the obvious water groove.

Protection 

Bring a single rack to BD C4 #2.

Bolt is no longer there, sleeve is still in the rock. No fixed anchor up top as noted in the description.
