Start right of small pine tree on a bulge section which reaches a slabby ledge (optional 1" pro should you desire). Enter into crack system that climbs up and through a cool flake which is likely the crux of the climb.


Furthest left route of the Right section of Wavy Gravy Wall. Bulge just right of small pine tree.


6 bolts with optional 1" gear to protect slab before reaching vertical climbing. Two bolt anchor.

fun route, low-key except for the last few moves before the anchor. i'd go with optional finger sized pro (1" would be too big).
