Jake after crushing his first ever V9!


Water Hazard Right is a rightward SDS variation of Water Hazard V10. To start, you use Water Hazard's right, crimpy start hold as a left hand. For a right hand, you use an obvious gaston - the start holds are about level. Pulling your butt off the ground is apparently essential for the given grade. From there, the climb continues directly upward; you can gain the last hold of the 'hard' section via a left gaston or a dynamic deadpoint. From there, the climb eases out onto the more positive holds that lead to an easy top-out.

The top section is potentially nerve-wracking, as your back is only a couple feet from the opposite wall of the caves.

The Bishop Guide says V9, but most say it is soft - there is talk of an imminent downgrade in the next edition.


Just right from the Ice Cave's entryway. Situated in the middle of the left wall if you are en route to the Mothership block. Same hunk of rock as Chizam.


1-2 pads (more if you can't reach the start holds? your call) and some hard-headed spotters - it is pretty close quarters. The climb exposes you to the potential of hitting the nearby wall if you come off of it oddly.
