BETA PHOTO: Neat little one move wonder.


Short, one move wonder route that feels more like a highball boulder problem. Start right of the bolts to get into the pit, clip the first bolt, move left, clip the 2nd, and jump to a great jug. Follow more jugs to the top.


Easy to identify the smooth wave like formation on the right side of the canyon when heading upstream. A few minutes past the entrance area (with the log and the splitter 5.10 route), right where the canyon tightens down.


3 bolts -- 2 bolt anchor.

Set this at 10d since that's what the book has it, but it felt significantly easier. Maybe 10a, even if you're short and have to jump to the jug. Worth doing once since the moves are more like something you'd do in a gym.

It's probably worth thinking about whether a 3 bolt one move wonder belongs in a beautiful place like Pumphouse wash.
