This route is the biggest drip located along the railroad tracks. Just watch out for the trains; they're loud and often.

Protection 

Lead with screws or scramble up about 50 yards to the south of the route to gain top rope access.

I climbed the right side of the main route 2/14/10 and I left two slings with biners lower down than the other anchors in order to keep the ropes out of the mud up top. Enjoy!

I was there with a few people today, found and used those slings to rappel down after top-roping. Not sure how we missed you. Were you there really early (we were there by 10:30, so not that early actually)?
