Chris surfing The Wave.

Description 

At first glance, this route looks like a squeeze job that ties into Black Dynamite. This is an independent line that has some great climbing. Some traffic and this would clean up nicely.

Head up to the first two bolts passing under the wave. Unclip the first bolt after clipping the 2nd. Extend the 2nd to avoid bad rope drag. Right as the wave becomes shallow there is a seam (the crux) right above (not Black Dynamite) that leads straight up to some varied crack climbing to a two bolt anchor.

Location 

The route is in between Black Dynamite and Sweet Sunday Serenade. There are two bolts across the wave-like feature.

Protection 

A single rack with some small cams / nuts.
