  • Description 

    Climb moderate terrain to the first bolt and then move up through a series of crimps and a couple underclings with technical footwork (crux) to reach the second bolt. Move up to the alcove and rest, the final 35 feet of this climb is some of the best rock in the refuge.


    This route is just right of Rap bolters and climbs the prominent black water streak up the main wall.


    6 or 7 QD's. Anchors and Chains at top.
