This is the farthest right hand route on the north-facing Grey Wave Wall, just right of the old buttonheads that protect 'Traditionalists at Work'. This route threads its way up a well featured, lower angled slab. The climbing is nice, with a lot of good edges, but a little bit of crumbly rock. There is basically no opportunities for protection on this pitch.


This is the furthest right of the routes on the north-facing Grey Wave Wall. It begins a short distance left of the only tree, and follows the path of least resistance.


None whatsoever. There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top (either Stardryves or buttonheads). Be sure to bring webbing, rings, and two ropes if you plan to rap. Otherwise, lower 5th class traverse to the left to get to the walk-off ledge.

Per rob bauer: new anchor bolts replaced old buttonheads as of last week (June 2014).
