Description 

This is a fun top rope between Goldeneye and Kiddy Pool. It climbs the obvious black streak which can be seeping after melt or rain.

The climbing is really fun on water polished edges and knobs. It is probably best left as a TR, since lead climbing would involve managing a possible fall into the rock that leans against the route.

Location 

To reach the South Face, hike up the Arthur’s Rock Trail for about 45-60 minutes. After you pass the Childbirth and Valhalla Boulders, the South Face is in view and off the trail on climber’s right. From the base of the cliff, walk back East to reach Water Fountain.

Protection 

You will need a few larger cams to build a TR anchor, a #2 BD and a #3 BD would be helpful.
